JRuby vs Visual Basic: What are the differences?

Developers describe JRuby as "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. On the other hand, Visual Basic is detailed as "Modern, high-level, multi-paradigm, general-purpose programming language for building apps using Visual Studio and the .NET Framework". Visual Basic is derived from BASIC and enables the rapid application development (RAD) of graphical user interface (GUI) applications, access to databases using Data Access Objects, Remote Data Objects, or ActiveX Data Objects, and creation of ActiveX controls and objects.

JRuby and Visual Basic can be primarily classified as "Languages" tools.

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.

According to the StackShare community, Visual Basic has a broader approval, being mentioned in 10 company stacks & 26 developers stacks; compared to JRuby, which is listed in 13 company stacks and 4 developer stacks.

      What are some alternatives to JRuby and Visual Basic?
      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.
