JRuby team is leaving Sun
The eWeek reports in “JRuby Team Leaving Sun for Engine Yard” that core developers of JRuby leave Sun:
Not sure of the future of their project at Oracle, the JRuby team is leaving Sun Microsystems to join the development team at Engine Yard, a company that specializes in Ruby and Ruby on Rails development and application hosting.
That aren´t good news, but at the end JRuby existed before the both joined Sun and it will exist further when the both leave Sun. But´s important that it will further exist, as it´s a good way to show that the JVM is more than just Java. I even think that JRuby with Glassfish (for example) is a much better place for Ruby as it´s native environment.
