The preferred method for deploying Rails has transitioned over the years, from FastCGI to Mongrel, and most recently to Passenger. There is still work to be done, but now a compelling way to develop and deploy Ruby apps, is in a servlet container. Developers can benefit from all the meta-programming power of Ruby, the portability of Java, and then deploy to Google App Engine for unprecedented scalability. We give developers the ability to optimize each URL to use any Rack-based Ruby framework or even servlets, beans, and JSPs. Java developers can quickly put together a simple Sinatra front-end for legacy J2EE code, while Rails developers can easily integrate servlets to do some heavy lifting. The JRuby development environment for Google App Engine runs inside a servlet container, and we have tools that make this easy. With micro-frameworks like Sinatra, or modular frameworks like Rails3, new app instances can spin up on demand, so you avoid paying for servers that sit idle.
