JRuby plus either Swing or SWT (possibly using one of the Ruby
wrappers/DSLs/APIs around them) is really hard to beat. Nothing to
compile, works consistently across platforms. You ship Ruby code alone
(Swing) or Ruby plus a couple pre-built backends (SWT) and you're
done.

The RedCar editor (redcareditor.com) is a great example of a solid,
awesome app written with JRuby and SWT, and there's a number of other
commercial users of JRuby + SWT or Swing.
