PJVM (0.01_02) *****

5 start for a developer release of a module that does almost nothing (yet) because authors like Claes deserves to be rewarded by some admiration and coverage.

A Java Virtual Machine written in Perl is a cool thing in itself but the goals stated in the documentation make it even more interresting:

Implement multiple bytecode backend execution engines, such as:

* Simple switching runloop

* One that can transform Java bytecode to perl optrees directly

* Transform bytecode -> Perl source and eval

* Fast JIT:ing backend written in XS

Have a look at Claes other modules too, JavaScript, Parse::Java and Scripting come to mind.
