A colorful feather up Rails’ cap is on the ground now. Twitter has decided to go away from RoR in favor of Java, this time for their entire search stack. Earlier in 2008-09, they decided to move their message queue back-end from ruby to Scala (a Java Platform) and now it is the time for their front-end to move to Java as well.

Frankly, this should be meaningless to most of us. How lucky would we all be to have a problem like Twitter has with scaling? How many of us have written sites that garner even 10% of the traffic Twitter gets every day? To think that this somehow validates Java as a platform is assuming that we're all making Twitter-traffic-sized apps. Don't be silly.
