    JRuby Co-Developer to conduct Workshop on JRuby, Testing Java with

    JRuby's tight integration with Java technology, together with
    outstanding libraries and frameworks from the Ruby world, makes
    development easier and more agile, while losing out any of the
    advantages of the Java platform. Now JRuby's co-developer himself,
    ThoughtWorks' Ola Bini, is coming this summer to India's biggest
    summit for the developer ecosystem - Great Indian Developer Summit
    (http://www.developersummit.com/) to demonstrate how to use JRuby
    build GUI applications using Swing, how to build web applications
    quickly using JRuby on Rails, and how to use JRuby to test your Java
    applications, using JtestR.

    Ola Bini, an expert on Java, Ruby and LISP, will also conduct a
    workshop to get you up to speed on using JRuby. After a quick intro to
    Ruby and JRuby, the tutorial will show examples covering how the Java
    integration features work, how to use JRuby for testing and how to
    create Java Swing interfaces using one of the several frameworks for
    this. The second half of the tutorial will focus on JRuby on Rails,
    starting with a quick introduction to Rails, and then showing how you
    can improve your productivity by integrating Rails with your existing
    Java infrastructure.

    Ola says the current way of testing in Java is cumbersome and not as
    practical as it could be. In contrast, the Ruby community is spending
    much time on continuously improving testing techniques. In his session
    on April 24, Ola will cover he way most testing of Java code is done
    currently, the problems with these approaches, how Ruby and its
    several frameworks can be used for good effect to test Java code,
    utilizing JRuby. The entire presentation will work around several code
    examples to make the testing concrete and useful.

    Ola, the author of APress' Practical JRuby on Rails is known to like
    implementing languages, writing regular expression engines, YAML
    parsers and other similar things that exist at the border computer
    science, so attendees can gain many more valuable ideas from this top
    expert in the developer ecosystem.
