I was just wondering why there are so many languages which runs on JVM like scala , groovy, JRuby, Jython to name a few , i just wanted to know, what this language offers to programmers, which Java itself fails to offer ?
And what factors people see before they go on to make new programming language ?
If you can parse and compile your code into Java bytecode, you can use an established platform, which is available on the majority of computers worldwide, has a reputation for reliability and speed, and … how much more do you want?
