Ruby == Concise Network Programming

By Peter Cooper / July 3, 2006 has published a great article by Mark Watson entitled "Ruby Programming Language Enables Concise Network Programming". Mark gives quick rationales and examples for:

  • a simple (not an exaggeration) Web server from scratch in 12 lines of code
  • a basic WEBrick server
  • a simple REST server with pure sockety madness
  • a quick and simple XML-RPC Web service
  • a slightly more complex SOAP Web server

A great introduction to some of the networking power at your fingertips with Ruby.
