JRuby has become a top-notch implementation of Ruby. But getting there hasn’t been easy. Ruby supports arbitrarily-encoded strings, lightweight threading, closures, large amounts of runtime code generation and class manipulation, native libraries, and many other features difficult to support on the JVM.
In order to bring a solid Ruby experience to the JVM, we’ve had to build out many subsystems that have traditionally been weak areas for the JVM:
In essence, we’ve subverted the JVM and the JDK to our needs. And as a result, JRuby users get not just a solid Ruby experience, but a better JVM experience.
Come see how JRuby is making the Java platform a better place to live.
Charles Oliver Nutter has been programming most of his life, as a Java developer for the past decade and as a JRuby developer for over four years. He co-leads the JRuby project, an effort to bring the beauty of Ruby and the power of the JVM together. Charles believes in open source and open standards and hopes his efforts on JRuby and other languages will ensure the JVM remains the preferred open-source managed runtime for many years to come. Charles blogs at blog.headius.com and tweets as headius on Twitter.
