How fast are JVM-based languages growing, Deploying ColdFusion Railo and Public IPs in Jelastic. . .

The Jelastic newsletter is a weekly round-up of news, how-to's and contribution opportunities. Here's what's happening this week:

How fast are JVM-based languages growing among developers?

As more and more programming languages come onto the scene, it can be exhausting to keep up; and even more so, a little worrisome wondering if you are relevant and how to stay so. Over on his blog, The Code General has been asking the same question. (If you are wondering who he is, we want to know to; if you know who it is, then let us know!)
Taking a look at the biggest languages from some recent, large polls, we can see that Scala, Clojure and Groovy come out on top as alternative JVM languages.

One of the biggest takeaways from this data, other than the fact that it's nice to see how at least two of these are growing in commercial adoption, is that the JVM is looking more and more like the target of preference for new languages, research and innovation.

Deploying ColdFusion Railo to Jelastic - A User Review

This user review of Jelastic came from a guy that wanted to deploy a ColdFusion Railo instance to Jelastic to test it out. He does a short how-to and has a fewrecommendations as well.
He goes through setting it all up and then gives his verdict. If you are interested in reading what he had to say about Jelastic as a PaaS for deploying ColdRusion Railo instances, you can check it out on the blog.

Public IPs in Jelastic

If you were one of the many people that was wanting to use a Public IP in Jelastic, you can! It's as easy as switching it on in the environment creation window.
