New to JRuby, Had a few questions on gems.
Generally if you need some features from Java libraries, do you prefer
to build a new Ruby gem to wrap it or you prefer calling it directly as
Java code?(Calling Java in Ruby looks kinda chunky to me though)
If building the gem, generally how to manage the Jar dependencies? Is
there a way which can specificity the jar dependencies? eg. If I write a
gem, and requires common-codec-xxxx.jar. How do we do that?
Last one, if we have to write a gem for JRuby, is there a good tutorial
for this task?
Thanks a lot.
