UPDATE: (Thur, Feb 6, 2014) I'd like to thank everyone for being patient. As mentioned earlier, OpenVMS.org is being ported to a new content management system. Due to the enormous amount of data, 13 years worth in the database, it's taking longer than anticipated. We're hoping the new site will be up and running within the next couple of weeks. Bare with us, it's been a colossal task! -Ken Farmer
JRuby 1.5.3 now available for OpenVMS
Posted by Ian on Tuesday March 01 2011 @ 05:30AM EST
Philippe Vouters and Thierry USO have ported JRuby 1.5.3 to OpenVMS.
JRuby is a Java implementation of the Ruby programming language, which means that the Ruby programs run atop the JVM.
This is an improved version which has a better overall performance and corrects a lot of bugs. Moreover, Philippe Vouters has ported jffi which allows calling native libraries (system services, RTL, libc...) directly in ruby.
JRuby for OpenVMS needs Java 1.6 or later. It must be installed on an ODS5 volume. JRuby has been tested on Itanium.
