Expected Behavior

I expect that slicing Java arrays with negative indexes works like it does in Ruby arrays, or even like it used to work for Java arrays before

See, with emphasis on:

Negative indices count backward from the end of the array (-1 is the last element).

Here is an example of the behavior I would expect:

# Ruby array slicing with a negative index in works fine:
jruby- :001 > [1,2][0..-1]
 => [1, 2]
# Java array slicing with a negative index in (last version known to work) works fine:
jruby- :001 > a = [1,2].to_java[0..-1]
 => java.lang.Object[1, 2]@1e730495 

Actual Behavior

Instead, what happens is that the last element of the Java array is lost:

# Java array slicing with a negative index in doesn't work any more:
jruby- :001 > a = [1,2].to_java[0..-1]
 => java.lang.Object[1]@6a472554 

Note that this issue was introduced in and remains in the latest released version

@kares Any thoughts on why this regressed?

seems like we (I most likely) did the range exclude end condition upside down :

kares@clevo:~/workspace/oss/jruby$ bin/jruby -e "p [1,2,3,4].to_java[0..-1]"
java.lang.Object[1, 2, 3]@5f282abb
kares@clevo:~/workspace/oss/jruby$ bin/jruby -e "p [1,2,3,4].to_java[0...-1]"
java.lang.Object[1, 2, 3, 4]@5f282abb

... fix coming for 9.2.8, thanks for bringing this up
