Nokogiri Java port for JRuby 1.5 Final?
Charles Nutter has set the JRuby community a challenge: create a 100% working Nokogiri Java port ready for the JRuby 1.5 final.
Nokogiri XML is a native extension for Ruby that isn't supported in JRuby. Charles Nutter is looking for the community to help him create a pure-Java version of Nokogiri, as not everyone can link native libraries on their platform of choice.
Nutter supplies a tutorial on how to get the Nokogiri "java" port, in the hope that JRuby developers will take up the challenge of fixing the bugs and helping him reach his goal of JRuby 1.5 final shipping with a Nokogiri Java port.
