I'm doing that with my Django & Selenium demo, but, yeah... this is just
for demo, not a 'real' project.
The current project I'm on is a .Net/C# project (very non-Java!)... in
this case, though, we're using "CruiseControl.Net"... It's in the
"CruiseControl family", but it's technically a different application, of
course with a heavy C# bent.
However, I'm working on a second tier build that involves launching
Ruby-scripted Selenium "remote control" tests... we'll be using
CruiseControl.Net to manage that. The "interop" will involve Nant kicking
off a Ruby script via the shell... Then my Ruby script will need to return
some XML for CC.Net to parse and post results.

Well, CC expects XML for that reporting stuff... Lots and lots of XML....
:-( Theoretically, XML isn't language-specific. But only Java-based apps
love using XML that much, though. ;-)

Not me, personally. :-(.... but I'm forwarding your question to
ThoughtWorks' internal software development list (a couple hundred folks)
to see if someone can answer your question.

ThoughtWorks has gotten big into Ruby/Rails in the last year... I wouldn't
be surprised if we have some good stories to tell about CC building Rails.
The lessons learned there should be applicable to building similar
'dynamic' Perl/Python/Ruby projects.
