Rails is definately cool. If you haven't played with it you should. It is quite informative to see the meta-programming built into Rails. It will make your time in less dynamic languages a little more fustrating (consider yourself warned). :)

I think it will not be Java. The language is just not maliable enough. You might be able to pull off something similar in Groovy, or some other dynamic language, on top of the JVM, though.

Backpack and it's related packages look marvelous. However, I'm a bit turned off by the levels of subscription and cost. Not that I think the fees are unreasonable but I can see myself locked into a money sink simply because I have data on their servers that I don't want to delete. For organizational purposes, I stumbled across this cool webapp via Lifehacker:

It has some of the main components I'm looking for and some cool things I didn't expect. But the killer thing is it's a single cross-platform .html file that you can save yourself and rsync between machines or web serve yourself.
