Packaging up gems with jruby-complete


#1

Hi,

I’m using jruby-complete and would like to bundle up some other gems
(Hpricot etc.). What’s the easiest way to do this?

Thanks,
Matt

There isn’t an “easy” way to do this right now. JRuby 1.1.6 has a
feature that allows you to bundle gems in a jar file, so you could
manually put the “gems” and “specifications” directories of a gem
repository into the root of the jruby-complete jar, for example. But
we still need to do some work on this for gems that include other jar
files of Java code, such as Hpricot.

I plan to do a write-up of this soonish, check my blog
(http://blog.nicksieger.com/) for the details.

Cool thanks Nick. Would you mind explaining the workaround? I unjared
the
jruby-complete jar. But not seeing rubygems or any other gem
specifications.
Are you saying Hpricot won’t work?

Thanks,
Matt
