Lots of hype on this JRuby stuff. Well I'm still very new to Ruby, in fact I came across ruby a couple of days ago and just loved it and I decided to use it with Java in my proposed project.
I'm having difficulty downloading the JRuby build and how do I configure it to work with the ruby interpreter.
Really sorry for moving far away from rails but I just need to know if I can use ruby with Java ME that is with JRuby. Which other Java platform can JRuby support?

Thanks in advance.

What do you mean? I can download, for example, the 0.9.2 version alright from the download page.

JRuby is a Ruby interpreter so you don't configure it--you just run it with "jruby myscript.rb" or something like that.

I suspect that JRuby's implementation is probably not Java ME compatible but maybe you could ask Charles Nutter and his team whether this is the case or not.

How do I go about asking him ?

Through the JRuby project's mailing lists, for example.

Also, if you're interested in the progress of JRuby, I highly recommend subscribing to Charles' blog.
