I talked with Zed at RubyConf. Here's a run-down of what we thought the
next steps should be for Mongrel-Java:
- 0.4 is the experimental future version of Mongrel, but it *is* going
to eventually become *the* version of Mongrel. The biggest difference is
the move from the C-based TST to a Ruby-based one, and that the 0.3
series has a bunch of security fixes. Zed thought we could try to do 0.3
if we wanted, but that concentrating on 0.4 is probably fine too.
- Zed is willing to include the Java-based stuff in Mongrel as an
alternative platform...so projects that require "mongrel" will still be
able to install once we have this up and running.
- We should follow up on looking at using Ragel to generate the HTTP
parser. It's available now, but I don't think anyone's circled back
around to making it go. Once we have that and appropriate code for
hooking it into JRuby, there's very little code we'll have different
from Mongrel proper. Zed was excited about that possibility.
