Apache Pivot example written in JRuby

Hi,

Has anyone got or found a working Apache Pivot (http://
pivot.apache.org) code example written in JRuby? I’m trying to create
one but
failing miserably. There are numerous Swing code examples written in
JRuby and I’m looking for something similar using Pivot.

Regards,

Chris

I spent a little time trying to get this to work and they are doing
something unfun with class loaders :frowning:

Here is code which almost works:
----- code ----
require ‘java’

java_import java.awt.Font
java_import org.apache.pivot.wtk.DesktopApplicationContext
java_import org.apache.pivot.wtk.HorizontalAlignment
java_import org.apache.pivot.wtk.VerticalAlignment

class HelloJava
include org.apache.pivot.wtk.Application

def startup(display, properties)
label = org.apache.pivot.wtk.Label.new.tap do |l|
l.text = “Nom Nom Nom!”
l.styles.tap do |s|
s.put(“font”, Font.new(“Arial”, Font::BOLD, 24))
s.put(“color”, java.awt.Color::RED)
s.put(“horizontalAlignment”, HorizontalAlignment::CENTER)
s.put(“verticalAlignment”, VerticalAlignment::CENTER)
end
end

@window = org.apache.pivot.wtk.Window.new.tap do |w|
  w.content = label
  w.title = "HEH HEH HEH!"
  w.maximized = true
  w.open(display);
end

end

def shutdown(optional)
window.close if @window
false
end

def suspend; end
def resume; end
end

HelloJava.new # Unfortunately Java interface not really implemented
until first
# construction
DesktopApplicationContext.main(HelloJava.to_java(java.lang.Class),
[].to_java(:string))

----- code ----

Invocation:
CLASSPATH=lib/pivot-core-1.4.jar:lib/pivot-wtk-1.4.jar:lib/pivot-wtk-terra-1.4.jar:.
jruby hello.rb

---- The error —

So wtk eventing appears to be doing a Class.forName on HelloJava for
some reason (perhaps to not store and pass around original class
reference), and it cannot find it since our classloader loaded it and
not their’s.

If you can tell pivot to use our classloader somehow or get some help
on the pivot side to better understand the issue then perhaps we can
help more. You could use jrubyc --java to generate a Java stub class
as a workaround (then it can load that Java class in its classloader),
but it seems like the above code should work in an ideal world.

Maybe someone on this list may have an idea…

Hi,

Just came across this thread. We don’t do anything unusual with class
loaders in Pivot (we don’t use a custom class loader), so in theory this
should work. I’m not familiar with JRuby, though. Does the code below
produce a .class file? If so, you should be able to launch it via
DesktopApplicationContext:

java -cp org.apache.pivot.wtk.DesktopApplicationContext
com.foo.HelloJava

If not, you could potentially create a custom application context, which
might make launching JRuby-based Pivot apps easier. This isn’t terribly
difficult, but it is much easier in Pivot 2.0 (currently under
development)
than it is in earlier versions. You can see an example of a custom
application context here:

http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/pivot/trunk/examples/src/org/apache/pivot/examples/swing/

The best place to continue this discussion is probably the Pivot mailing
lists:

http://pivot.apache.org/lists.html

Feel free to follow up there and we’ll do what we can to help.

Hi Tom,

Thanks very much for your help. I explored the jrubyc option
yesterday, but my aim is to get to the point where I can just run
a .rb file using the jruby command. I’ll see if I can contact someone
on the Pivot side of things to get around the final roadblock.

Regards,

Chris

I just did a little digging and it looks like the question had already
been
posted to the Pivot user list. Apparently I replied, though I didn’t
remember doing so. :slight_smile:

Anyways, another option is to use JRuby script from within a WTKX file
(or
BXML file, as it is called in Pivot 2.0). That would allow you to get
around
the instantiation issue. You could declare your UI in markup, but write
your
event handling code in JRuby. This would certainly be simpler, and might
actually be a better approach (depending on your use case).
