Description Petr Jiricka 2008-02-04 14:42:26 UTC
I went through the following steps:

1. Launch the wizard for creating a Ruby on Rails project
2. Now I wanted to use Mongrel with JRuby. To do that, I need to install the Mongrel gem to JRuby
3. I pressed the Manage button next to JRuby platform to manage its gems
4. The Platform dialog appeared
-> now I wanted to manage the gems for JRuby, but there is no way to do that from this dialog

What I have to do is to cancel all the dialogs and go to Tools -> Ruby Gems, which breaks the workflow.

It would be useful to launch the gem manager from the Ruby Platforms dialog.

This lost a little bit on importance with autodetection of platform in comboboxes. You will likely not need to go to
platform manager dialog now. Rails might be updated directly from wizard. But still valid RFE.
