Some time ago I saw some work announced here on a Ruby-to-Java bridge (using
JNI if I recall right). Today I just came across a Java 1.5 enhancement
under JSR 223 (Scripting Java)
http://www.judoscript.com/articles/jsr223.html that may ease the work.

Anyone know how far along these two efforts are (JSR 223, and the Ruby-Java
bridge). ?
