JRuby is a Java implementation of the Ruby interpreter, being developed by the JRuby team.
JRuby is free software released under a three-way CPL/GPL/LGPL license.
JRuby is tightly integrated with Java to allow the embedding of the interpreter into any Java application with full two-way access between the Java and the Ruby code. (Compare Jython for the Python language.)
JRuby’s lead developers are Charles Nutter , Thomas Enebo Ola Bini and Nick Sieger. In September 2006, Sun Microsystems hired Enebo and Nutter to work on JRuby full time. In June 2007, ThoughtWorks hired Ola Bini to work on Ruby and JRuby.
