I thought I'd be racy this week and convert a rather large application from Ruby on Rails to JRuby using Netbeans. Learned a lot. Not all the gems come across but the 'show stopper' for me was the Rmagick gem which I obviously use to store my photos in the database. JRuby claims to have a Rmagick4j but it after 'Googling' I found it doesn't work and the project seems to be on someone's shelf that doesn't really want it. Is there anyone out there saving photos to a database and sizing them in JRuby? Sure appreciate any ideas or links to a smart JRuby person. Thank you, David

You should go for image_voodoo, not RMagick -> http://blog.nicksieger.com/articles/2008/03/27/ima... - Maurício Linhares http://alinhavado.wordpress.com/ (pt-br) | http://blog.codevader.com/ (en) On Thu, Mar 5, 2009 at 6:05 PM, InventoryTrackers

RMagick4j  is in decent shape, it was a summer of code project last year. That said, there still could be some things that might not work. Please let us know on the JRuby lists  if you encounter uses where it doesn't work. See  for an example that uses RMagick4j. /Nick : http://code.google.com/p/rmagick4j/ : http://xircles.codehaus.org/projects/jruby/lists : http://advent2008.hackruby.com/past/2008/12/19/rub...
