IntelliJ and Rails

After I had seen this post where it was announced that the next version of IntelliJ (still a GREAT IDE for Java) will support Rails. Well, now it's been released and there's no word about it. A search on the JetBrains site gives no hits for "Rails" either (not even as a plugin). Very disapointing. Will have to stick with RADRails then. Or does any reader know if Rails for IntelliJ is still/already alive/available?

UPDATE: Dmitry has provided a link for the plugin (see comments). Thanks, Dmitry! Given JetBrain's history with IDEs I am very much looking forward to giving this a try.

We never promised to include Rails support in IntelliJ IDEA 6.0. The Ruby/Rails plugin is being developed independently from the IDE itself, and is currently at a pre-alpha stage.

You can get more information about the plugin at http://www.jetbrains.net/confluence/display/RUBYDEV/Home.

NoSQL talk at Developer Summit

Three days ago I had to chance to talk about NoSQL at the Internet Briefing's Developer Summit. On top of general ideas and concepts like the CAP theorem I chose to talk about Apache Jackrabbit, CouchDB and Cassandra. My slides are embedded below.
It was a really good event with interesting speakers and a knowledgeable audience. I was especially pleased that when I talked about CouchDB's HTTP API someone from the audience mentioned that Apache Sling does something very similar for Jackrabbit.
Special kudos to Christian Stocker of Liip for daring to do a live demo of the "real-time web" - he took a picture from his phone and had it pop up on Jabber and Twitter in about 5 secs.
Vlad Trifa has posted a good summary of the whole event (part 1, part 2) - he also gave a great presentation about the application of the REST architectural style to the "Web of Things".

NoSQL: A long-time relation(ship) comes to an end

(cross-posting from here)

OK, I admit it, declaring that "the RDBMS is dead" is a meme that has been going around the software industry for a while. Remember object-oriented data bases that were supposed to replace the relational ones? Well, guess who is still here. However, despite the RDBMS's amazing survival skills I would like to propose a related prediction:

I believe that the year 2009 will go down in history as the year when the "relational model default" ended. The term "relational model default" was coined by me to describe a peculiar thing that goes on in application development: start talking to your average application developer about some arbitrary business requirement and chances are that simultaneously he mentally constructs a relational model to fit those requirements.
That relational approach to modeling your problem may or may not be suitable. The real problem is that all too often this default does not get challenged. As a consequence,…
