First sighting of JRuby on Android
by Frank Spychalski filed under all

Last week I cross-compiled miniruby to Android (more details on that adventure later). I asked some time ago about JRuby on Android and it seems like Charles Nutter finally managed to run JRuby on Android.

# cat test.rb
require 'java'
import java.lang.System

class Ruboto
  def greet(who)
    puts "Hello, #{who}!"

name = System.get_property('java.runtime.name')

# dalvikvm -classpath ruboto.jar org.jruby.Main -X-C test.rb
Hello, Android Runtime!

This leaves only one question: where can I get ruboto.jar to start playing around with it :-)

Any comments? Or questions? Just leave a Reply:
