List of JVM languages
This list of JVM Languages comprises computer programming languages that are used to produce software that runs on the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). Some of these languages are interpreted by a Java program, and some are compiled to Java bytecode and JIT-compiled during execution as regular Java programs to improve performance.
High-profile languages 
Apart from the Java language itself, the most common or well-known JVM languages are:
- Clojure, a functional Lisp dialect
- Processing, a visualization and animation language and framework based on Java with a Java-like syntax.
- Groovy, a scripting language
- Scala, an object-oriented and functional programming language
- JRuby, an implementation of Ruby
- Jython, an implementation of Python
