Hey, remember way last December, we had a bunch of dynamic-language experts in to visit the Java team here at Sun. That was just one little step in the process of making the Java platform a little friendlier to other, non-Java-like, languages. Today I see another step, Gilad Bracha writing about a proposed new JVM bytecode, invokedynamic, designed to lower one of the nastier barriers faced by people staging dynamically-typed languages on the JVM. Gilad’s style is awfully prickly, but the narrative is engaging.
