I just released a gem that provides a nice little example of how to
take advantage of JRuby’s ability to use a Java library when it makes
sense. It’s not exactly a masterpiece, but it does demonstrate some
techniques that might be useful to other gem authors who are
interested in taking advantage of the JRuby platform when building
Ruby libraries around Java.
The gem is called yuicompressor. It’s a Ruby wrapper for Yahoo!'s
http://rubygems.org/gems/yuicompressor and the source is on my GitHub
account at http://github.com/mjijackson/yuicompressor.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. It is my first attempt at
working with JRuby, so you may find something that could be done
