Dizzying loyalty to the Java VM


Its clear from the dizzying number of articles and blogs on the topic that developers do not want to dump the JVM when they use a language other than Java to run their code. Some wireless carriers in the US can only envy such loyalty.

All to the good for the continuing efforts to make the JVM friendlier to other languages, as discussed at the recent JVM Language Summit, summarized here by JSR 292 lead John, and here by JavaLobby's Nitin.

Even to sample multilanguage activity over the last week: The JavaPosse met the Jython team in its most recent cast, a hands-on view of editing Groovy in NetBeans and an interview with the Griffon (Groovy+Swing) team, a free chapter of a book on object oriented techniques for JavaScript, how to do dependency injection in Scala and knowing when to fold in Scala, a pean to JRuby, and even a call for a language revolution.

Dizzying.
