Combining Java, Clojure and JRuby

JRuby can access classes implemented in pure Java code. Clojure can generate a class file. Therefore it's straightforward for JRuby to access classes implemented in Clojure.


First I define a class with a method in plain Java.

  1. It gets better; you can use Clojure's persistent data structures from JRuby as well:

    Using the STM is still not seamless since JRuby's Exception proxies get in the way of transaction retries, but with a little more work it could be done.

  2. Thanks Phil for letting me know it!
