Using Ruby Gems from MarathonITE Scripts
MarathonITE uses regular ruby scripts. You can use any of the external modules with MarathonITE scripts. This functionality is specifically useful for integrating your test scripts with external systems like databases, web services etc.
Installing and Using Ruby Gems
For installing and using Ruby gems you need to set GEM_PATH environment variable and use the bundled jruby jar file to install the gem.
C:\> SET GEM_PATH=<gem-folder>
C:\> java -mx512m -jar <marathon-home>\support\jruby-complete-<version>.jar -S gem install <gem-name>
Once the gem is installed, just use it in the regular way in the test script.
