Imagine mixing the easy syntax, powerful language features, and rapid development of Ruby with the speed, power, and flexibility of the Java Virtual Machine? Ruby and the JVM go together like chocolate and peanut butter, and you'll see some examples in this talk. You'll see how to use Ruby to build simple command line tools that work on all platforns, you'll learn how to make a GUI app using Ruby and SWING, and you'll find out how to take a Ruby on Rails application, turn it into a WAR file, and get it working on a Java web server. With JRuby, you can use the Ruby language and tap into the rich, powerful, and stable Java ecosystem.
