ANN: webrick-fcgi 0.1.0 - Ruby

I've been working this week on a webrick servlet compatible module using FCGI. I prefer Apache as a general webserver, the process separation of CGI and FastCGI over mod_ruby, and the webrick API -- so I combined them. I'd appreciate comments, suggestions, improvements, and certainly not least, success stories. The module is available at: http://theinternetco.net/projects/ruby/webrick-fcgi-0.1.0.tar.gz With regards, Ari...

    I think FastCGI is the way to go.

    Absolutely. In my testing, it has been the most stable and flexible for
    my uses: I'm not writing a single script system, so mod_ruby's
    namespacing issues are painful. I don't want scripts owned by different
    users, in different parts of the system to clash.

    Privilege separation is important -- FCGI allows scripts to run under
    different userids than the webserver. That's a plus.

    No need for separate apache instances for different configurations.

    Now, on top of that, WEBrick is a standard part of the distribution now,
    so I imagine many interesting things will be released as servlets only
    -- compatibility with that is a must, but I'm stuck with Apache for
    other parts of my site, and mod_proxy seems a brittle solution.

    All this led me to create the module, so I can use webrick servlets
    under fastcgi.
