  • Embedding Ruby and RubyGems Over RedBridge

    by Yoko Harada

    If you are a JVM language lover, this presentation is for you because you know you can mix multiple JVM languages in a single code. If you have JRuby in your toolbox, Ruby and RubyGems are friends of your favorite JVM languages. Even famous RubyGems, Rails, is, for example. Isn’t it nice? You can get a lot of help from RubyGems without writing Ruby code. Magic is RedBridge. RedBridge is Java API to hook Ruby code up, easily.

    But, wait. Why didn’t JRuby simply implement JSR223? Off course, JRuby has a JSR223 engine; however, it is, unfortunately, short for JRuby. Important methods and ideas are missing. That’s why JRuby had RedBridge, which is really JRuby friendly. For example, below is a list of the ideas/methods added to RedBridge:

    • A local context scope
    • A variable type
    • A receiver object
    • Loading from classpaths
    • Configuration methods
    • Termination method

    At 8:30am to 9:20am, Tuesday 20th September
