Have You ever seen Cucumber and Rspec ?
Because of the fact that ruby is a non typed language testdriven is a philosophyIn the ruby way it is recommended to write the test first (OK I not always do this but most times) . Your right when you say choosing the best language for the problem. But if you consider to bring cobol programmers in the web world You have also to take into account the learning curve. And the learning curve is very short in ruby. In our team it is very intresting to compare a character who programms java and a chrarcter who programms ruby.
