Ruby is the effort to recreate the Ruby interpreter in Java. JRuby is tightly integrated with Java to allow both to script any Java class and to embed the interpreter into any Java application. The package includes a Ruby 1.6.7 compatible interpreter (not all builtin classes are supported yet), support for scripting Java classes and interfaces in JRuby, and Bean Scripting Framework (BSF) support.
