I took tons of notes while I was working on the
I was going to hold off publishing till I released the code,
but once I actually launched the formal Sun process to do that, I discovered
that it can take two or three weeks, and so I decided to
go ahead while it was fresh in my mind.
Unfortunately, the piece pretty soon had fifteen different sections and would have been
too long for mere mortals with jobs to read, and furthermore, the sections
didn’t have much to do with each other, and there just aren’t that many people
on earth who’d be interested in all of them.
Some of them look close at the issues of making Java and Ruby get along, while
others wallow in duck-typing perversity and finer points of Ruby style.
So I’ll keep them short and do one a day (or so) for the next week
(or so) and fill a table of contents in here.
I. Why JRuby?
II. Back to Ruby
III. Quack Like a URI
V. << !!
VI. Java APIs from JRuby
VIII. Surface Phenomena
IX. Those Libraries
X. Making Markup
XI. Where To?
