Java.

At work we're using RSpec (and Watir) to specify the behaviour of a
web application written in Java. The specs are written up-front, prior
to the Java code.

You can read more about it here:

Although I haven't done so beyond toying with it, you can also use
RSpec on JRuby to verify behaviour of arbitrary Java code. More info
