Hi, I'm new to JRuby and I have a question regarding passing ruby variables to java. Situation: In java, I have an abstract class, called JClassA and another class called JClassB. In ruby, I implement the concreate class of JClassA, called RClass. Here are the relations: RCLass < JClassA. JClassB(JClassA) (The constructor of JClassB takes JClassA as an argument) Problem: From RClass, I need to call JClassB and give the current instance as an argument. If I do JClassB.new(self), then it will complain about not finding the constructor. On the other hand, if I do JClassB.new(self.to_java(Java::SomePackage.JClassA)) then it complains that it cannot find the method to_java in RClassB. What am I doing wrong? Can I convert any ruby object to java object? Thanks, Pran.

Figured it out. You cannot send a reference of 'self' from the 'initialize' method.
