RoR Database seeding

Lately, I’m researching various RoR methods, technologies, and doing further ready on Agile software development methodologies. Below is a technique I’ve learned for seeding RoR databases.

MIT Coeus – independent build #1

Standalone – MIT Coeus Build #1

Unpacking (ex 4.3.1 to 4.3.2 to … to 4.3.7) into the same source folder and then trying to do a build is asking for problems.

These following doc aws helpful in getting Java code signing and the local keystore configured.
