Resources for creating a Ruby wrapper for a Java API?

What are some good resources for taking a Java API and making a Ruby
wrapper(probably a gem) for it? I’m wondering what blogs, tips, or open
source projects demonstrate good Ruby<–>Java integration and could be a
reference.

You might look at Celerity.


Both of these suggestions are pretty good. I’m still digging into
Celerity,
but from my browsing, it seems that it is a really clean integration of
Java
into the Ruby environment. I like how they namespace some classes to be
Ruby equivalents, which makes the Ruby side look just Pure-er(?).

This is old but it’s a good example of progressively improving a Java
API to make it more ruby-like.
