Spawn

http://rubyforge.org/projects/spawn
a plugin for Rails to easily fork or thread long-running code blocks.

This plugin provides a 'spawn' method to easily fork OR thread long-running sections of code so that your application can return results to your users more quickly. This plugin works by creating new database connections in ActiveRecord::Base for the spawned block. The plugin also patches ActiveRecord::Base to handle some known bugs when using threads (see lib/patches.rb).
