For the last decade, the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) has been a popular platform to host languages other than Java. Language developers have continually relied upon the performance and “write-once-run-anywhere” portability of the JVM, as well as other advanced features, to provide the runtime environment for their languages. In fact, porting language interpreters to the JVM became so popular that Sun had hired some high-profile language developers, such as Charles Nutter (of the JRuby language), Ted Leung (Jython), and others to accelerate the porting efforts.
