Ruby has no native ByteArray or ByteBuffer types, unlike Java. While it'd be great to have something like this in core Ruby, the next best place would be in the New IO for Ruby project, which provides a thin wrapper around Java NIO. The goal of this project would be to wrap Java ByteBuffers (particularly direct ByteBuffers) in a Ruby class that can also be implemented in pure Ruby which hooks into nio4r and can be used directly with nio4r's Java NIO backend.
