The main idea of Bck2Brwsr is to make it dead simple to execute Java Code in the Browser on any device. Since JavaScript is ubiquitous, it’s the obvious target language. GWT solves the problem by providing some APIs and a compiler that generates JavaScript. Bck2Brwsr is different in that it creates a JVM that is written in JavaScript and is capable of executing Java Bytecode directly. So when a Java runtime is available, the code could be executed by that, and benefit from the superior performance of the JVM. But if there’s no JVM, a minimal environment is automatically installed and runs the code in the Bck2Brwsr VM. Here are my first experiments with Bck2Brwsr, a Java API for HTML5 Canvas.
