Here are three high quality introductory JRuby videos to learn more about JRuby (obviously), how to use it with Java and how to use it on Glassfish.

The first video by Ola Bini is of the best quality and provides a nice introduction to JRuby and its benefits. It is part of Google Tech Talk.

Bruce EckelThe second video is a demonstration by Bruce Eckel (remember his Java book?) and Jeremy Meyer on how to use JRuby with Java. It is a good video done with puppets as speakers (trust me Bruce isn’t that bad looking!).

The third video is on how you can use JRuby on Glassfish application, a superfast and lightweight (as I am told) application server from Sun. It is kind of boring as there is no commentary just a visual of the author typing his commands and typing it really fast. However if you are stuck with any steps you can rewind the video to see what he has done. It is the worst of the three videos.
