Subject Ruby on Rails ahead when it comes to unified build and deploy
Date Tue, 07 Apr 2009 20:02:40 GMT

The Ruby on Rails world seems to have it covered when it comes to unifying
build through deployment using a consistent tool chain.

* rake for build
* capistrano for deploy 
** cap is based on rake

Aligning tools like this is a good idea enabling tighter application life
cycle time and leverages skills.

I am wondering what you all think prevents the Ant/Java world from adopting
similar tool chain concept. Here are some questions that come to my mind:
* Perhaps this isn't recognized as a significant problem worth solving ?
* Organizational obstacles prevent it?
* Lack suitable tools?
* Environments/support groups too siloed or disconnected to support the
idea?

Seems like all the potential bits and pieces are there to support the
concept. Curious what people think.
