Not quite, and the JNI route may have an advantage.

JRuby implments the Ruby 1.6.7 interpreter; we're on the verge of a 
proper Ruby 1.8 release.  Perhaps it's less hard than I imagine,
but updating JRuby with each change to the latest stable Ruby release
is a task.

On the other hand, allowing calls into Java via JNI sidesteps this 
problem.  I think, though, that it also sidesteps the ability to load 
and execute Ruby scripts from Java. :(
