Error while calling ruby code using JRuby in Eclipse Aptana Studio 3 Terminal View

Hi all,

I have a set of ruby code (which is actually a gem that I extracted and the lib folder contains a bunch of .rb (ruby code). I have Eclipse Aptana Studio 3 plugin setup and have JRuby

$ jruby -v
jruby 1.7.4 (1.9.3p392) 2013-05-16 2390d3b on Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 1.
6.0_45-b06 [Windows 7-amd64]

I need to execute a ruby file: /lib/my_rubycaller.rb, which is like the following:

Now at the Aptana Studio 3 Terminal View, I typed the following:

$ jruby -S lib/my_rubycaller.rb
LoadError: no such file to load -- somedependency
require at org/jruby/
require at c:/Users/mkorapat/MyProjects/jruby-1.7.4/lib/ruby/shared/rubygems/cor
(root) at my_rubycaller.rb:11

Inside my_rubycaller @ line# 11, I have the require statement. I don't know what I am doing wrong. I am new to Ruby development, but since I am versatile with Eclipse, just stuck to Aptana and JRuby is just because I thought perhaps I could leverage some additional benefits that it has to offer. But it might still be a matter of time for me to go with Ruby as against JRuby, but still, I wonder how it will help me in this scenario.

Thanks in advance for the help.

just changed require to require_relative - since apparently my JRuby version seems to use ruby 1.9 and I see that require_relative is the way to go. Refer to So long so good. Thanks.
