Hey, remember way last December, we had a bunch of dynamic-language experts
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,
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.
