In 1996, after the fall of the Soviet Union, the U.S. State department funded the development of an import/export control system for the newly formed nations. We were involved in that effort; a major multilingual Java/J2EE application deployed in 7 countries, spanning over 10 years of development. That project has had some great successes in its lifetime, including being a factor in Poland's acceptance into NATO.

Last year we were involved in a modernization effort for that project, including new functionality and an online web presence. Using JRuby, we were able to rapidly develop new features on top of an aging J2EE codebase. This is the story of our success with JRuby in a complex technical and political environment.
