Project Contact: Thomas E Enebo <email@example.com> JRuby also uses code generously shared by the creator of the Ruby language, Yukihiro Matsumoto <firstname.lastname@example.org>. == About JRuby is the effort to recreate the Ruby (http://www.ruby-lang.org) interpreter in Java. The Java version is tightly integrated with Java to allow both to script any Java class and to embed the interpreter into any Java application. See the 'docs' directory for more information. == Run bin/jruby rubyfile.rb interprets the file 'rubyfile.rb'. If you checked out from the repository or downloaded the source distribution, see the next section to build JRuby first. == Compiling from source You will need: * JDK 1.5 or greater * Apache Ant (http://jakarta.apache.org/ant/) 1.7 or greater. To compile, just type: ant This will create a jruby.jar file in the projects 'lib' directory. == Testing In order to run the unit tests, copy the build_lib/junit.jar file to either $ANT_HOME/lib/junit.jar or ~/.ant/lib/junit.jar. See 'docs/README.test' for more information. == More Information Visit http://jruby.org for more information. == License Read the COPYING file.
