hi Ranchers,

I don't know what is Ruby and how it works but i really interested to know about this.

can any one clear me on that.. I found this on Description of this book on Amazon.com
"But Ruby looks a lot different from Java, and some of those differences support powerful abstractions that Java lacks."

what are the Java lacks compare with Ruby ??
