openssl issue with rails and installed default gems #1549

when I install the default gems:
krypt, jruby-openssl, bouncy-castle-java
tell bundler via the Gemfile to "use" them, see Gemfile from gist below. this will lead with

require 'openssl'

NameError: uninitialized constant OpenSSL::Digest::OPENSSL_VERSION_NUMBER

the same happens with a fresh rails application, add those gems from the gist to the Gemfile and start rails

$ jruby -S rails server

and it fails with the same error. the workaround here is to add a require 'openssl' before the Bundler.require statement.

the gist gives the steps to reproduce it

the background is the websphere rails app which sees the same errors, all loosely related to jruby/warbler#238, jruby/warbler#241, #1119 #1435 and all regarding websphere

it look like I can not reproduce this anymore, better close it now.

Should this be closed now?

well, there is still an issue with some classloaders and default gems but this one I just can not reproduce it anymore.
