Has anyone setup Ruby On Rails on the iSeries?  I am guessing it could run
in the PASE environment similar to what Zend is doing with PHP.  Looks like
it is written in C ... 
 
After seeing things like the screencast on the  following page, which shows
a RoR plugin for eclipse, I am even more intrigued to inch towards RoR and
away from Java for Web UI's. Seems like RoR brings simplicity to Web UI's
like RPG does to character screen development.

Note that there are projects like JRuby that allow me to make use of
existing Java libraries I may have:

IBM writes about it here though not concerning the iSeries.

This person seems to know that you CAN'T make it run on the iSeries.
