I have been programming Java in NetBeans for a long while, but I just bought the book “Using JRuby” (really well-written) and came to the point where the example in the book needed the gem Rubeus. I downloaded it, went to Tools/Ruby Gems in NetBeans, and managed to get it installed (or so it appeared) successfully. Then I tried to run the example code, but I get the message
/jruby1.6/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:812:in `report_activate_error’: Could not find RubyGem activesupport (= 2.1.2) (Gem::LoadError)
from /jruby1.6/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:223:in `activate' from /jruby1.6/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:258:in `activate' from org/jruby/RubyArray.java:1671:in `each' from /jruby1.6/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:257:in `activate' from /jruby1.6/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:33:in `require' from /Users/jrdoner/NetBeansProjects/RubyApplication4/lib/main.rb:14:in `(root)'
So apparently a gem needs to be activated, even after it’s installed. How do I do that?
Thanks in advance for any help.
