State of spawn'ing in JRuby


What is the state of the Kernel#spawn support in JRuby?

Currently I am using @headius Spoon GitHub - headius/spoon: A fork/exec replacement for FFI-capable implementations
which wraps posix_spawn using FFI. This has proven to work correctly
in JRuby 1.6.4, but I haven’t tested it in any older distributions.

Should Spoon work reliably across older versions of JRuby? Is
Kernel#spawn now implemented with posix_spawn, simaliar to Spoon?


you’re talking about just linux/posix spawn, I assume?
