    The Future of RoR seems bright

    http://searchwebservices.techtarget....198211,00.html

    "This past week, Burton set off a bombshell with the release of a report by Monson-Haefel titled "JEE5: The Beginning of the End of Java EE." Like one of those prehistoric animals that went extinct because it got too big to live off the available foliage, the Burton analyst said that with the release this spring of JEE5, the Java EE platform has grown too complex to be workable for enterprise developers, who are increasingly looking at alternatives such as Ruby-on-Rails."

    I don't have anything against Java. I imagine there are still a number of places where Java might be a better fit (embedded devices). But for the web... I really do enjoy working in Ruby and the Rails Framework.

    Java for embedded devices, on a JVM? That's pretty ridiculous.

    Isn't Java ME (micro edition) specifically for mobile devices? What exactly is ridiculous?

    Anyhow, I wasn't trying to say Java was the best fit for that - just that there are some areas where Java likely has an advantage over RoR. I'm not expert on what those are as I don't develop in Java. Besides, the OP was specifically comparing JEE vs RoR - so I guess I went a little off-topic.

    So in conclusion: Ruby on Rails has a bright future... agreed.

    Ok, a mobile phone is a very powerful computer. I was thinking about a watch or a microwave running a JVM...
