By the end of 1997, there were already many JVM languages, including implementations of Python (Jython) and JavaScript (Rhino). Today, a wealth of new programming languages such as Scala, Groovy and Clojure started life as JVM languages, while others like JRuby were ported to the JVM to produce what is arguably a superior implementation.

This evolution of Java into a broader and richer ecosystem holds the secret to Java's future viability and vigor, and indeed its longevity. Oracle's role in this future as an ecosystem leader is pivotal to this success.

Al Hilwa is program director of application development software at IDC.
