    Ruby on Rails also just got a bump in the JavaLobby newsletter out
    today. Rails excerpt follows:

    Ruby on Rails is a powerhouse
    I didn't get to spend much time at the No Fluff Just Stuff symposium
    here in Research Triangle Park this past weekend, but one noteworthy
    session I did get to attend was Dave Thomas' presentation about "Ruby
    on Rails." I was amazed as I sat through the 90-minute presentation
    watching Dave knock out feature after feature of a real-life web
    application in record time and with more compact code than any I had
    previously seen. The Rails developers seem to have carefully
    considered the recurring pattern needs of web apps, and the framework
    provides full functionality for a typical database-backed CRUD
    (create, read, update, delete) application in a matter of minutes.
    Rails uses intelligent reflection to map database tables to Ruby
    objects, and the apps you generate with the Rails scripts form a very
    reasonable foundation for extending and customizing to meet your
    specific needs. Unit testing is built-in by default, as is a full web
    server for testing and debugging. The next time you need to get the
    job done very quickly you may want to try out Ruby on Rails for
    yourself. I don't know enough yet to say how much it can scale, but
    Rails is quite clearly a major step forward for those who want web
    application development to be easier. Dave has a new book in beta,
    check it out here.
