GoodJob 1.4: JRuby compatibility and more
GoodJob version 1.4 is released. GoodJob is a multithreaded, Postgres-based, ActiveJob backend for Ruby on Rails. If you’re new to GoodJob, read the introductory blog post .
GoodJob’s v1.4 release adds support for:
- MRI 3.0
- Rails 6.1
- Postgres 12+
And includes additional improvements to the Web Dashboard.
Version 1.4’s release comes three months after v1.3 and five months after GoodJob’s initial v1.0 release.
GoodJob 1.4 adds compatibility for Ruby on Rails applications running under JRuby. GoodJob’s multithreading is built on top of ConcurrentRuby, which provides consistent behavior and guarantees on all four of the main Ruby interpreters (MRI/CRuby, JRuby, Rubinius, TruffleRuby).
A minor downside of JRuby is that JRuby’s database adapter,
activerecord-jdbc-adapter, does not support Postgres LISTEN, which means GoodJob must rely on polling for new jobs under JRuby.
Broader compatibility and improvements
In addition to JRuby, GoodJob 1.4 adds compatibility for MRI 3.0, Rails 6.1, and Postgres 12+.
GoodJob 1.4 also includes improved filtering for the Web Dashboard,.
The next version of GoodJob will add support for daemonization.
