Originally posted by jatandar dhirwani: I have a general question under which circumstances and where to use Ruby on Rails .
If you need to write a web application that doesn't do anything out of the ordinary, RoR would be perfect. If it is going to use a lot of Ajax, you probably can't do better. Besides, Django, there really isn't a web framework that can touch RoR in the areas it excels.
Problems with RoR include deployment. It is a pain, to put it midly, although it is getting better, especially among rails hosts. I am not sure it scales as well as say Java can. Rails is about 4 years old and under constant change, so who knows. The constant change is annoying. Tutorials written 6 months ago, might not work at all without some tweaking. Especially scaffolding and pagination examples.
