JRuby on appengine with Ubuntu
by Frank Spychalski filed under appengine, JRuby, Ruby

Overall the instructions on are really good, so this is just a dump to remind me of the Ubuntu specific stuff I did on a pristine Ubuntu installation…

sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jdk
sudo apt-get install ruby-full rubygems

This installs only rubygems 1.3.1 but appengine needs 1.3.5.

ERROR: Error installing google-appengine:
bundler requires RubyGems version >= 1.3.5

sudo gem install rubygems-update
sudo /var/lib/gems/1.8/bin/update_rubygems
sudo gem install google-appengine

Et voilà! Ten minutes later I have a running hello world in the cloud ;-)
