Why is this happening? if i put my Rjb::load method in environment.rb webrick won't start from inside radrails it just sits there trying to connect.. however i can start webrick manually by doing script/server in a terminal window. i saw some code where instead of having the load method in environment.rb they put it in the model that uses it.. decided to try this, but when i put it in there either inside a 'connect' class method or just floating inside the body of the class i get the error 'can't create Java VM'.. where does the Rjb::load method go? i left the require in environment.rb (but i did try moving it out of desperation trying to get things to work).. any help would be majorly appreciated

I would suggest take this to a JRuby forum. I would guess most people here are not running Ruby inside the JVM. I could be wrong. I just imagine you'll get better help from the JRuby guys.

I ran into a similar problem in Windows. It doesn't detect the JAVA_HOME environment variable. I added the following above the Rjb::load line: ENV['JAVA_HOME'] = 'C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0' if ENV['JAVA_HOME'].nil? - Stephen

Ahhhh! yes the JAVA_HOME wasn't getting passed on! thank you so much.. i'm not on windows, but the ENV['JAVA_HOME'] check failed so i did like you suggested (but with linux path). funny thing is that it would work fine when i did script/server in the terminal, but trying to start the server in radrails kept giving me the 'can't start Java VM'.. thanks a bunch..
