GlassFish Gem 0.2.0 and JRuby 1.1.1 module for GlassFish v3 update center

Posted by vivekp on May 5, 2008 at 6:52 PM PDT

New version of GlassFish gem 0.2.0 is out. See Arun's announcements.
The major changes in this version are:

  • Version upgrade to GlassFish v3 TP2.
  • Fix to the size regression introduced in the previous release. It is back to about 3MB.

We also released JRuby 1.1.1 runtime bundle that includes Rails 2.0.2 along with other
required gems, such as jdbc, jdbc-mysql.

To install JRuby 1.1.1 and Rails 2.0.2 runtime on Glassfish v3 TP2, do the following:

  • From inside GlassFish install directory:

    This will get all the required jars to run updatetool. After it gets all the
    dependencies, run



Select JRuby On GlassFish and click install. It will create jruby directory
inside glassfish-tp2/glassfish/modules directory. Thats all you need. Now start deploying
your Ruby/Rails applications on GlassFish v3 and you dont need to set JRUBY_HOME in config/asenv.bat or asenv.conf that
you would do otherwise to tell GlassFish where to find JRuby runtime.
