JRuby vs MATLAB: What are the differences?

What is JRuby? A high performance, stable, fully threaded Java implementation of the Ruby programming language. JRuby is the effort to recreate the Ruby (http://www.ruby-lang.org) interpreter in Java. The Java version is tightly integrated with Java to allow both to script any Java class and to embed the interpreter into any Java application. See the docs directory for more information.

What is MATLAB? A high-level language and interactive environment for numerical computation, visualization, and programming. Using MATLAB, you can analyze data, develop algorithms, and create models and applications. The language, tools, and built-in math functions enable you to explore multiple approaches and reach a solution faster than with spreadsheets or traditional programming languages, such as C/C++ or Java.

JRuby and MATLAB belong to "Languages" category of the tech stack.

"Java" is the primary reason why developers consider JRuby over the competitors, whereas "Simulink" was stated as the key factor in picking MATLAB.

JRuby is an open source tool with 3.32K GitHub stars and 830 GitHub forks. Here's a link to JRuby's open source repository on GitHub.

Empatica, Wham City Lights, and Walter are some of the popular companies that use MATLAB, whereas JRuby is used by Groupon, Soundcloud, and Lookout. MATLAB has a broader approval, being mentioned in 12 company stacks & 23 developers stacks; compared to JRuby, which is listed in 13 company stacks and 4 developer stacks.

    What are some alternatives to JRuby and MATLAB?
    Ruby
    Ruby is a language of careful balance. Its creator, Yukihiro “Matz” Matsumoto, blended parts of his favorite languages (Perl, Smalltalk, Eiffel, Ada, and Lisp) to form a new language that balanced functional programming with imperative programming.
    Groovy
    Groovy builds upon the strengths of Java but has additional power features inspired by languages like Python, Ruby and Smalltalk. It makes modern programming features available to Java developers with almost-zero learning curve.
    Rails
    Rails is a web-application framework that includes everything needed to create database-backed web applications according to the Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern.
    Go
    Go is expressive, concise, clean, and efficient. Its concurrency mechanisms make it easy to write programs that get the most out of multicore and networked machines, while its novel type system enables flexible and modular program construction. Go compiles quickly to machine code yet has the convenience of garbage collection and the power of run-time reflection. It's a fast, statically typed, compiled language that feels like a dynamically typed, interpreted language.
    PHP
    Fast, flexible and pragmatic, PHP powers everything from your blog to the most popular websites in the world.
