One major benefit of JRuby is the ability to import Java classes and use them as if they were POROs (Plain Old Ruby Objects). This feature makes Java fun again. You can pull in legacy code and sculpt an API which fits nicely into your Ruby code. You can even access novel and unrivaled Java libraries to do something not currently possible in the Ruby world.

This talk will:

* Show basics of interacting with Java classes from within Ruby
* Point out Gotchas
* Give style hints to make Java APIs fit better into the Ruby way

By the end of this talk you should be able to effectively consume Java libraries in Ruby in a way that is satisfying and useful.
