When you run java with the -jar option, your classpath (the list of directories and jars where java looks for classes) is limited to the file you specify. Also with that option, java checks the jar file for a manifest specifying the main class (the class that contains a main method to execute). From the wiki, it seems that your generated class implements an interface called RubyProgram, and from the error it seems that it's located in package com/xruby/runtime/lang/RubyProgram. So I suggest locating this RubyProgram interface definition, may inside the xruby-0.1.4.jar (jar tvf xruby-0.1.4.jar| grep RubyProgram), and if it's there try running your program as: java -cp xruby-0.1.4.jar:test.jar test.main (I see from the wiki that the test.jar should contain a class main in the test package which contains the main method, so the above should work). You can also specify the classpath as a environment variable $CLASSPATH I haven't tested anything, I just looked at the information in the wiki, hope this helps. Jesus.
