Jruby 1.1.1 and oracle thin client

Hi,

I have done the following:

  • installed JRuby 1.1.1 (added the JAVA_HOME variable to the PATH)
  • installed the Oracle 8 Thin client files (and added the appropriate
    location to the PATH system variable)
  • installed the Ruby Oracle interface files:
    C:>jruby oci8-1.0.0-mswin32.rb (I am using Windows VISTA)
    this copied the OCI8.rb to …/site_ruby/1.8/DBD/OCI8
    this copied the oci8.rb to …/site_ruby/1.8
    this copied the oci8lib.so to …/site_ruby/1.8/java

But when it is time to run the program that has require ‘oci8’, I get
the following error:
– no such file to load – oci8lib (LoadError)

I have all this working with Ruby…and the only difference I can see is
that the oci8lib.so file is copied to …site_ruby/1.8/i386-msvcrt
instead. This difference seems appropriate.

Any help?

Thanks!

JRuby does not support the normal Ruby C extensions, unfortunately, but
you can just use Oracle JDBC drivers or ActiveRecord+Oracle JDBC.
