This past week, I saw Marcos Placona‘s post about running Railo in AppFog for free. He does it by installing the Railo WAR file into a java instance. I was able to get a Railo 4 instance running fairly quickly. Unfortunately, there are a few issues to work out. You push code update using a CLI ruby app (which is fine) but each time you push updates, the Railo administrator panels lose all of their settings (including the password). I’m sure there is a way of addressing this but I’m not sure what it is. I am going to poke at it when I have a chance.
Useful and/or interesting stuff I found this week:
