Hello all, I am trying to use a Java library/engine called Activiti. It can callback into the library that uses it by supplying a class name and implementing an interface. I have not been successful in doing that so I thought I would try to do some simple java tests to see how all this works and I am confused. I am a java novice, so please point out how this should be done (if it is possible). I have a gist that has a top level ruby file (caller_test.rb) that requires some java code that calls back into either java or jruby. The four java files (Caller.java, A.java, B.java and C.java) allow me to test java reflection and then I try to get the classes defined in JRuby. What is most curious is that if I compile a ruby file to java with jrubyc and the --java flag, and then use javac with the jruby.jar file to compile that generated java class, then the reflection sees it. If I go straight to a class file with jrubyc, then it doesn't work. Here is the gist <https://gist.github.com/boberetezeke/ba919d3e45fca.... Thanks for any help.

Your link to gist does not work for me, gives 404 (where you editing it when you posted?). It is not always necessary to pre-compile to java to use reflection (and supply a class) you can use 'to_java' as following:- # in ruby-processing using reflection require 'jruby/core_ext' class TestRegister attr_reader :parent def initialize parent @parent = parent register = parent.java_method :registerMethod, [Java::JavaLang::String, java.lang.Object] register.call(:draw, self) register.call(:pre, self) end def pre puts "before draw" parent.background(100) end def draw puts "at begin draw" parent.fill(200, 100) parent.ellipse(100, 100, 60, 60) end end cls = TestRegister.become_java! in this case we are sending the self object which needs to be a java.lang.Object for reflection to work, the to_java does the compile for you at runtime. The methods pre and draw are registered (by reflection) on java side at runtime.

Here is the gist link again (it works for me - when not logged into github): https://gist.github.com/boberetezeke/ba919d3e45fca0f18a2d "You must be the change you want to see in the world." Mahatma Gandhi blog: http://steve.stewdle.com/blog twitter: @boberetezeke

Aha looks like you are sending a String when the class object is required! Not much point converting it to a java object if you are sending it as String no!

To what file/line are you referring to?

OK, I had some time to look at your problems here. It seems like you may need to run jrubyc with an additional flag. I created this repo to show you my changes. Look at the shell script cmp_cc.sh... https://github.com/bikeonastick/steve_callback Most of your other classes stayed the same other than changing some log output messages. --rt On Wed, Jun 11, 2014 at 1:38 PM, Steve Tuckner <firstname.lastname@example.org>
