I have been using RoR at home for experimentation, and love the power
and simplicity. The Ruby language is great, but the Rails framework is
what wins it. If only we had such a thing in RPG. When IBM started
talking about a DB2 interface for Rails I thought iSeries, but alas
no. I assume they have their hands full with PHP at the moment, if I
had the time and some C skills I would port it to the iSeries. If
anyone does manage to get it over, I would be keen to test it.

I guess porting it to PASE would be simpler, but as it is in C does
that mean it could be ported to the standard environment?

That would be interesting to do. I have heard through others that a simple
web application could be built in just minutes and I believe I have heard it
is gaining ground very quickly on the other web languages. That would be
cool if someone could do a write up on how to install it.
