Jruby Cookbookby Justin Edelson
Synopses & Reviews
If you're interested in JRuby, you probably don't need a turorial on Ruby, Rails, or Java — you just need to know how to get things done. This Cookbook offers practical solutions for using the Java implementation of the Ruby language, with targeted recipes for deploying Rails web applications on Java servers, integrating JRuby code with Java technologies, developing JRuby desktop applications with Java toolkits, and more. Using numerous reusable code samples, JRuby Cookbook shows you how to:
The JRuby interpreter combines Ruby's simplicity and ease of use with Java's extensive libraries and technologies, a potent blend that opens new possibilities for Ruby, Rails, and Java. This Cookbook helps you take full advantage of JRuby's potential.
"The JRuby Cookbook is an excellent book for any polyglot who is trying to bridge the gap between Java and Ruby. It provides solutions to specific problems developers face in both their development and testing environments, along with the applications they're building." — Bob McWhirter, Research & Prototyping, Red Hat Middleware
Book News Annotation:
This tutorial on the JRuby programming language is aimed at users and programmers who need to integrate this information into an existing platform without needing to learn Ruby, Rails or Java first. Edelson (platform engineering, MTV networks) and Liu, a software developer and game designer, explain how to install JRuby on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux and how to deploy Rails applications using JMS, JMX, JPA, Spring and Hibernate. The authors also explain how to develop desktop applications with toolkits such as Swing, SWT and Java 2D. A free online edition of this book is available for 45 days after purchase.

Offers step-by-step solutions on how to deploy Rails applications on Java application platforms and integrate them with Java frameworks. As a Java implementation of the Ruby language, JRuby lets developers build Ruby-on-Rails web applications that can take advantage of Java libraries and servers, or be integrated with other Java applications. But there are plenty of tricky details along the way, and this concise Cookbook helps developers solve specific JRuby programming problems with targeted recipes.
In Using JRuby you'll venture into the wide world of open-source Ruby and Java libraries. Write Ruby on Rails web applications that run on Java servers like Tomcat. Use Java's JDBC or Hibernate to easily connect Ruby to industry-standard databases. Test your Java program using Ruby's elegant Cucumber and RSpec frameworks. Create dazzling desktop user interfaces with frameworks like Limelight and Monkeybars. Package a Rails or plain Ruby project for easy deployment to any Java environment.
JRuby lets you merge the best of several possible worlds, so you can create unique software using the best tools available. This book is your definitive guide.
