NetBeans adopts Ruby/JRuby
by Steve Anglin
|Why not groovy?|
I think that Groovy/Grails may still come, but JRuby/Ruby is first as Ruby on Rails is more popular Web framework to integrate. And JRuby is doing or will be doing this soon. JRuby and NetBeans also have Sun tie-ins.
|Groovy does not have the momentum that Ruby has, lets face it. JRuby is currently passing 98% of Rails's exhaustive unit tests, which means its very close to being a done deal. Jruby is integrated perfectly into NetBeans and it runs rails in JRuby by default. I'm running yesterday's Netbeans nightly build and I'm having a blast, practically rewriting all of my Rails apps just for fun.|
