After many years of complaints from the RedDot CMS developers around the planet, Open Text has finally agreed to release the next Version of the Open Text Web Solutions Management Server 9.6 based on a Ruby on Rails core. This is not going to be a full product accessible for everyone, but partners and clients will get access to the Ruby based source files and they will be able to improve and commit it.
Beside the existing standardized integration solutions into leading portals such as SAP NetWeaver®, IBM WebSphere®, and Microsoft SharePointTM there will be also a new Portal Connector called “B-Lock” which is able to manage SSO, tracking visits, reporting live stats to groups (for example Marketing, Management, Executive, Portal Observation Officers, ..).
RedDot Developers all around the planet should rejoice at the prospect of writing based on that new Ruby core sliding on Rails.
Fearing the possible wrath of the RQL(Rendertag Query Language) community that will feel abandoned by this bold move, Open Text will also create a RQL like Ruby language called Ruby QP(pronounced “Cup”). Using “Cup”, RQL developers will be able to use Ruby like features like Untyped Variables, OO-based Methods and last but not least the easy to understand Ruby language.
