JRuby: Pushing the Java Platform Further

A session at OSCON Java 2011

Monday 25th July, 2011

10:40am to 11:20am (PST)

JRuby is just a Ruby implementation for the JVM, right? Wrong! JRuby has gone well beyond other language implementations by supporting arbitrarily-encoded strings, native library calls, reloadable applications, and much more. This talk will explore how JRuby is pushing the JVM and Java platform in new directions, and how you can take advantage of this new power.
