Hello, i want to start developing on rails, but dont know ruby. I do know java very well and have little experience with php. Do you think that i should learn ruby before thinking of going on rails? or do you think its OK to just jump into rails? well thank you very much...

PS: sorry if i have a bad English but it is not may native language.....

I remember hearing somewhere that ruby on rails is a framework or something of ruby, but I'm not sure.

Obviously you should learn the language before you learn a framework that runs on the language.

First of all, learning ruby is like learning html. So you can do it very easily. And almost every ruby on rails tutorial got some ruby introduction. So don't be afraid and start learning.

In my experience and my opinion on this subject, which this question is very common I feel that it is possible to learn rails alongside ruby. A suggestion since you already have programming experience is to get your hands on the Michael Hartl ruby tutorial e-book or to goto the website which is free and follow the tutorials. www.railstutorial.org I believe is the link. This was a good start for me. Follow along the tutorials and excercises if you get to a point where you feel the ruby is too heavy than go on a google mission to get a better handle on ruby semantics.
