Hi David,

Are you sure you're in the right group?  The reason I ask is because  
you mention lots of things that aren't ruby.  AJAX, J2EE, etc..

If it's Ruby on Rails you're looking for, please try the Rails  
mailing list.. visit the Rails mailing list page at:

     http://lists.rubyonrails.org/mailman/listinfo/rails

If it's not Rails you're looking for, could you be more specific?

Sincerely,
Steve
