Ruby <-> Java : JSR 223


(Its Me) #1

Some time ago I saw some work announced here on a Ruby-to-Java bridge (using
JNI if I recall right). Today I just came across a Java 1.5 enhancement
under JSR 223 (Scripting Java)
http://www.judoscript.com/articles/jsr223.html that may ease the work.

Anyone know how far along these two efforts are (JSR 223, and the Ruby-Java
bridge). ?

There are a few nice sentences about the greatness of Java in the
article that made me smile. Including the following:

“Non-Java application developers will have a chance to be exposed with
Java technologies while developing in their favorate langauges, and
possibly upgrade themselves to Java programming.”

Aheum… I don’t necessarly see how switching to Java is an “upgrade”…

Anyway, it could be interesting to have an easy and performant way to
access Java libraries.

Guillaume.

It depends from where you come. I’d regard it an upgrage for these
languages:

machine code
C
C++

Anyway, it could be interesting to have an easy and performant way to

Yep. Or even run Ruby on the Java VM.
