Interesting Initial Comparison: Ruby vs. Java

I finally decided to take a look at Ruby on Rails yesterday. It looks incredibly slick, with most of the benefits appearing to stem from the dynamic nature of Ruby itself, as well as a focus by the developer(s) on simplicity. Compare a Ruby on Rails beginner tutorial with it’s Java/Spring equivalent:

Spring
Ruby on Rails

All I can say is.. Wow. You be the judge. (Keep in mind that Spring is a lightweight java framework)
