Or just another framework?

Look at the previous thread here that asks if RoR is just a hype.

I think RoR is a nice looking framework, but Java is still my preffered web development programming language.

I see no reason why to embrace this framework (especially when it requires learning the Ruby language - which is terrible).

Now let the wars begin

Yes, in some aspects. No, in others. It's like comparing apples to oranges unless you make the comparison in an actual context.

Not wanting to start a language war, I'll just state that I find Ruby to be a nicer language compared to Java. There's no point in arguing about personal preferences.

I think even Ruby afficionadoes would admit that Ruby and Rails aren't up to the Java EE standard in areas like security, clustering, high throughput, etc. And I see a great deal of Java influence in Rails (e.g., Rake versus Ant, testing from JUnit, front controller for the web app, etc.) Rails didn't lick this off the grass.

Try Trails and/or Grails as a Java EE equivalent for Rails. Those would suggest that Java and EE and learn from other approaches just as they've learned from Java.

It does look like a great way to develop web apps quickly. I think they've put a great deal of thought into conventions that help. I like the agile features they've built-in (e.g., TTD).

There's no reason why the world can't have co-existing tools. C++ hasn't gone away; neither has COBOL and FORTRAN.

Besides, who annointed Struts as THE web UI framework?

If configuration files is what you hate and want to have fun doing swing-like
development for the web , then you will love wicket

Update: This is not an attempt at hijacking the thread though

No its not. It has a stable 1.1.1 release and 1.2 should be out shortly.
Its just plain vanilla HTML and Java. Either way, eclipse support is in the works

Where can I get information about RoR? I'm working on own framework, but maybe I'm wasting time.

Wasting your time, indeed.

With Rails, Grails, Trails, Spring, AppFuse and a thousand others, why does the world need another? What is compelling about yours?
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
