I need to find out how I could use Ruby to integrate existing
applications so that I could for example .. automate certain procedures.

I am relatively new to the language. As a part of exploring new
technologies my group at college is looking at Ruby. I have never used a
scripting language before. We are using Programming Ruby as our
reference, but I thought of doing something not in the book. I am also
now learning COM and I know that it isn't the simplest way to get things

I have looked around for material on this topic, however I failed to
find, so far, anything that I could understand wihtout really knowing
the language well.

automate certain procedures=?

in windows you have to use win32 ole:

Some specialized stuff:

for web automations (client-side):
web automation server-side: selenium

win interface automation: autoit

If it is integration and automation of desktop applications you should
at win32ole. For browser automation in windows see Watir.

For more server-side integration

You can also try SWExplorerAutomation (SWEA)
( You can very easily create API
(Service) for a Web application with SWEA. The SWEA  API can be invoked
from  a windows service or ASP.NET.
