Error running .class generated by jrubyc

Hello guys,

I have a ruby script that runs perfect from the command line using
So I tried to compile it with jrubyc and the .class is now generated.

Then I proceed to run it with java -cp .:/pathto/jruby.jar classname and
receive the following error:

Exception in thread “main” search.rb:2:in `require’: no such file to
– rubygems (LoadError)
from search.rb:2
…internal jruby stack elided…

What am I missing?

Maybe you should post this to the JRuby ML rather than ruby-talk.


There’s no one thing that’s true. It’s all true.

Basically you just need to specify where JRuby is located with the
jruby.home property. Othewise it can’t find things like rubygems or Ruby

java -Djruby.home=/path/to/jruby -cp .:/pathto/jruby.jar classname
