I have worked this example verbatim, here’s the stack when I try to do the rake on big_jar. This is out of the chapter on deployment. I’m running this out of my Windows 7 64 bit box using Java 1.7 and jruby 1.6.5 using the 1.9 lang option

see here:

jruby 1.6.5 (ruby-1.9.2-p136) (2011-10-25 9dcd388) (Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 1.7.0_02) [Windows 7-amd64-ja va]

Note: What file or directory is it looking for ? thanks.

Hi, Charles.

Do you have the latest jruby-complete build downloaded and saved into your project directory as @jruby-complete.jar@ (with no trailing version numbers)?

Does the error persist if you try the same example from the latest version of the book’s source code?

Hi, Charles.

I think I’ve found the culprit. When JRuby shells out to run the @jar@ command, the shell treats the backslash in the shell command as the path @C:\@, instead of treating it as an “ignore this newline” character.

You can either remove the backslash and newline from the command inside the @Rakefile@ (which we only broke across lines to fit in the book), like this:

sh 'jar -cfm scrape.jar big.manifest Launcher.class scrape.rb -C vendor . -C tmp .'

… or change the single quotes to double quotes, like so:

sh "jar -cfm scrape.jar big.manifest Launcher.class scrape.rb \
-C vendor . -C tmp ."

Hope this helps…

Ian, thanks, I took a detour off from JRuby partially since I just need to finish some Ruby work and partially because well I was getting stuck with JRuby. I’m definitely keen on getting up to speed, JRuby is very compelling and they seem to keep up close to the MRI releases. I will put this on my queue to check out by the end of the next week.
