We are learning Ruby on Rails and a consultant recommended we use jRuby on NetBeans 6.9 to build our app, so we are working on that to learn as well. But a lot of the examples in the book don’t work. We tried to get the version of Rails off NetBeans to see if it’s just different from the book but we can’t figure it out. It does not give a Ruby or Rails version, it just gives “Built-in JRuby 1.5.0”.
Not that I’m asking for NetBeans support here! I’m just wondering if we’re barking up the wrong tree in starting a new language and should use a different Ruby/Rails programming environment.
