ruby-debug can't be installed on JRuby

Reported by Rohit Arondekar | June 11th, 2010 @ 03:41 AM

ruby-debug is included in the Gemfile for JRuby which causes the following on bundle install (in rails source):

WARNING: JRuby does not support native extensions or the `mkmf' library.
         Check for alternatives.

The full output is here =>

Removing ruby-debug from the Gemfile works. I don't know if there is an alternative to ruby-debug for JRuby. In case there isn't I've made a patch that removes ruby-debug for JRuby engine.

P.S Also in an app, gem sqlite3-ruby cannot be build, the alternative is to use gem 'activerecord-jdbcsqlite3-adapter' — but that needs to be done manually by the user I guess?
