"The JRuby language is getting commercial support for developers
this week, thanks to Ruby specialist Engine Yard.
"The JRuby language enables developers to leverage the features
of the Ruby programming language on Java infrastructure. With the
new commercial support for JRuby, Engine Yard is aiming to help
expand the addressable footprint for the open source development
"Engine Yard is no stranger to JRuby, and has employed the
project's founders since they left Sun in 2009. The support comes
at a key time for the JRuby community, as a new version is in the
works that will significantly expand features available to the
developers, which the project's leaders hope will broaden the
uptake of the language."
