The NetBeans Ruby IDE is a powerful development environment for Ruby and Rails. It offers Ruby developers several productivity boosting features that you’ve come to expect from a modern IDE, including advanced code editing, navigation, refactoring, testing and debugging. The latest 6.1 version introduces support for GlassFish V3 and JRuby debugging among other new features and improvements.

In this session we’ll demonstrate how to use the Netbeans IDE effectively for developing and debugging a Rails application and how to deploy the application on GlassFish V3. We will also cover using Java integration, including JDBC and, along the way, show all the nice features the IDE has to offer for improving your productivity.
