Betreff: Java, Ruby, JRuby, JRubify some Java?

Hello JRuby People,

I'm not quite ready to JRubyify yet but,
I'm working on a mini-project which requires that I screen-capture a
portion of my x-display on a linux box.

It looks like I can use a class in Java named "Robot" to do this:
- http://java.sun.com/javase/6/docs/api/java/awt/Robot.html

I figure any class (even if it is a Java class) named "Robot" deserves
my attention.

So I ran this query:
- http://www.google.com/search?q=java+robot+screencapture

And this page looks good:
- http://www.rgagnon.com/javadetails/java-0489.html

I see this example:

import java.awt.AWTException;
import java.awt.Robot;
import java.awt.Rectangle;
import java.awt.Toolkit;
import java.awt.image.BufferedImage;
import java.io.*;
import javax.imageio.ImageIO;

class ScreenCapture {
public static void main(String args[]) throws
AWTException, IOException {
// capture the whole screen
BufferedImage screencapture = new Robot().createScreenCapture(
new Rectangle(Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getScreenSize
()) );

// Save as JPEG
File file = new File("screencapture.jpg");
ImageIO.write(screencapture, "jpg", file);

// Save as PNG
// File file = new File("screencapture.png");
// ImageIO.write(screencapture, "png", file);
}
}

My question:
Is it possible to transform the above Java-syntax into Ruby-syntax
which could be interpreted by JRuby?

Or I could ask it this way:
How do I transform the above Java-syntax into JRuby-syntax?

Dear Audrey,

you can use Java classes in Jruby straight away:

For Linux automation, you might want to look at (the non-Java)
xdotool and its Ruby gem binding xdo:

You might combine that with one of the many ways to take screenshots
in Linux:
