It’s here: The little integration kit that could change the world. Thanks to the efforts of hotshot bdg developer Andrew Bays, the Ruby IDK is now rockin’ on BEA’s dev2dev CodeShare. Visit the project at https://rubyidk.projects.dev2dev.bea.com and start a discussion thread if you like.
Like all the best things in life, the Ruby IDK is free. It comes as a Rails project, so just unzip it and type
ruby script/server and off you go developing Ruby/Rails portlets to your heart’s content. Enjoy!
