will each have their own copy of the application, and run independent of each other.
I am trying to determine the best language, with the least amount of startup time, but which will provide for deployment as explained above, and will be fairly scalable.
As I am very well versed with Java (on the desktop application side), that always seems to be an option, and the language is nothing new. But I have also heard Ruby & ROR will be a good fit (although I have yet to learn the language)...can anyone point me in the right direction?
so would ruby not be a good option? I am also looking for easiest deployment. I have heard, that with java, you can just create a WAR file, and upload it to the server...although there can be issues with tomcat, as far as when it will recognize the new files.
Does ROR have a similar deployment strategy. Since I plan on having multiple instances of the same application running in different directories, it would be nice to simply a small set of files, rather than a whole bunch of files and directories.
