Vivek, I tried downloading this gem without success using

ERROR: could not find gem glassfish locally or in a repository

Also, does the gem include the glassfish jar from

or is this another download?

Thanks in advance,



I wonder if this is some network or Rubyforge mirror issue. I just tried installing it installs just fine. I am assuming you are trying to install it on JRuby installation.

Glassfish gem is based on the glassfish v3 kernel so it has everything (all the jar v3 kernel jar files), you dont need to install anything.

So this is what you would do.

-install jruby

  • jruby -S gem install glassfish
