Hey guys, I recently tried to use JRuby with eclipse (with Dynamic Language Toolkit) but I am a bit confused how to use JRuby with Java. How do I organize my projects? Apparently I can't have JRuby script files in Java Projects and vice versa. Do I need to store them in separate projects and how can I efficiently work with both languages? I am trying to learn how to use JRuby with Java and call methods from Java in Ruby. I know these are easy questions for users who work with JRuby regularly but I am still quite new to java and completely new to Ruby, so I am very grateful for general tips, links and advice. Thanks for the help. :)

Joel, Would you mind sharing the motivations behind invoking Ruby from Java as opposed to the other way around? With respect to project structure I feel like multi-module projects make sense to me, but I don't use Eclipse so I don't know if that is possible: e.g. project - -+ module1-jruby -+ module2-java project-files (makefile,build.xml,pom.xml) Thanks, Ariel --- Sent from my mobile device. Please excuse any errors.

Actually I wanted to make an UI in java and use ruby scripts from the UI and therefore invoking ruby from java. I am not particularly shure what I will do with that later, for now I am trying to learn to script and to use the scripts in java. I thought about doing smaller statistical calculations or mathematical modelling, usin fisher equations and similar methods. In eclipse, do I need to import the ruby folder as a library? Apparently I can't add have a ruby module and java in the same project and I don't know what I should do with this.
