I haven't tried it in PASE but I guess I could give it a whirl. I could add it to my Common presentation next month if I could get it compiled to run in PASE. I'll take a look.

I have tried Ruby on Rails though. Walked through a tutorial and have read up on it a bit. I bumped into Ruby quite a while ago when I was using Datavision as a reporting tool (it uses Ruby for calculations and formatting). Although it seems pretty slick on simple CRUD apps, I did not have the time to walk through writing something more robust with it (replacing, say, our existing Struts/Jsp/Hibernate stuff with a RoR app). Sometimes the simple tutorials run out of gas when you try something more substantial.

If I come across anything, I'll post.

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.

existing Java libraries I may have:

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