(Crossposting note: This question has been posted also to the JRuby mailing list 16 days before, but hasn't produced any answer so far). jruby 1.7.23 (1.9.3p551) 2015-11-24 f496dd5 on Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 1.7.0_79-b15 +jit [Windows 7-amd64] I run a scriptlet in my scripting container like this: (RubyObject) ro = (RubyObject)container.runScriptlet(org.jruby.embed.PathType.RELATIVE,"example.rb"); where 'container' is of type ScriptingContainer. The "local variable behaviour" is set to "transient". The file example.rb contains: foo='xxx' $bar='yyy' 'zzz' I can retrieve from the Java side the value 'zzz' via the variable 'ro', because it is explicitly returned from runScriptlet. I can also retrieve the value of the global variable $bar using container.get("$bar") Is there a way to retrieve the value of the toplevel variable foo? container.get("foo") returns the null pointer. I also tried to change the local variable behaviour to "persistent", but still same result.
