Re: [PhillyOnRails] Ruby in a JVM

While I've not explicitly used JRuby, I'm pretty sure
I use it implicitly by using RadRails.  I'm pretty sure
it's just an interpreter.  Based on a quick glance at the
site, you can access ruby from java and java from ruby
with the bean scripting framework. Not sure if that's what
you were driving at, or if you were driving at getting .class
files to represent your Ruby sources.
