JRuby Explorations

Scott Rippee @ 9:14 pm March 5th, 2007

I read something about JRuby today, I think it was that they have a new release that is many many times faster. Anyways, this inspired me to play around with it some. I pulled the newest code from their subversion repo, set up my environment and wrote out some code for a bit

Conclusion… Its really cool and its hard to believe that it actually works. It feels strange creating Java objects in ruby, using their Java methods, and then using them like ruby objects. Very strange, but that strange feeling is cool. Thinking about the huge set of Java libraries instantly available is pretty amazing. No wonder Sun wanted these guys. :)
