JVM Languages @ JavaOne 2008

Guest Author

In JavaOne 2008, there are many intesting sessions on "other" JVM languages covering both dynamically typed languages (JavaScript, Groovy, JRuby) and statically typed languages (JavaFX, Scala). As usual, there are many sessions covering application aspects -- like using scripting on Glassfish, Grials (Groovy), Rails (JRuby) and so on. But, my interest is mostly on the programming language aspects and JVM implementation issues. Here is a table of sessions covering those:
