Virtual Machines for Dynamic Languages

the post on Ars Technica .NET and Java to get better dynamic language support neatly summarises the activities in creating virtual machines (VM) for dynamic languages. They fall into three categories:

  • Extend .NET to support dynamic languages;

  • Extend the JVM to support dynamic languages;

  • Build a new VM focused on dynamic languages - leading here is Parrot, an open source VM linked to the Perl 6 community.
