Ruby and Zero

Sunday, October 7th, 2007

Out of the box, Project Zero supports PHP and Groovy as scripting languages but, as this developerWorks article demonstrates, extending Zero to support other languages is pretty trivial. In this instance, they show how adding support for Ruby (specifically JRuby) can be achieved with one simple class. Now Rails developers have no excuse not to take a look at Zero!

Project Zero

Saturday, June 30th, 2007

I was ever so slightly nervous about posting this given the lack of fanfare on any IBM website but Andy has at least saved me from being the first to stick my head above the parapet. As Andy says, one of the items that was creating a buzz at the WebSphere Services Technical Conference that we couldn’t talk about was something named Project Zero. Project Zero aims to provide a simple framework for developing Web 2.0 style applications through the creation of RESTful services, rich user interfaces and mashups. A scripting based approach is used with Groovy for the Java developers but also a subset of PHP. I shan’t go in to lots of technical details, you can read all about those on the Project Zero website.
