I've been tracking the TorqueBox team for a long time, even when the "team" was really just Bob McWhirter. I like what the team are doing and have even been pulled in to learning Ruby and contributing the initial transactions support. So it was good to be able to attend some of their team meeting at JBossWorld and hear the plans for the future. It was also interesting to realise that TorqueBox is yet another example of JBoss Everywhere: providing the enterprise capabilities offered by JBoss projects and platforms to a wider audience of users and developers than we've done traditionally. Who knows ... at some point maybe we'll look at other languages than Ruby to do something similar. Until then check out TorqueBox and my congratulations to the team!
