List of JVM languages
This list of JVM Languages comprises notable computer programming languages that are used to produce computer 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.
The JVM was initially designed to support only the programming language Java. However, as time passed, ever more languages were adapted or designed to run on the Java platform.
Apart from the Java language, the most common or well-known other JVM languages are:
- Clojure, a functional Lisp dialect
- Groovy, a dynamic programming and scripting language
- Scala, a statically-typed object-oriented and functional programming language
- Kotlin, a statically-typed language from JetBrains, the developers of IntelliJ IDEA
- JRuby, an implementation of Ruby
- Jython, an implementation of Python
JVM implementations of existing languages
|COBOL||Micro Focus Visual COBOL|
|ColdFusion Markup Language (CFML)||Adobe ColdFusion
|Common Lisp||Armed Bear Common Lisp
|Mercury||Mercury (Java grade)|
|Perl 6||Rakudo Perl 6|
|Visual Basic||Jabaco is a freeware IDE in beta-testing since 2009, with a partly open source  Jabaco framework runtime. Jabaco compiles VB 6 syntax source to Java bytecode.|
New languages with JVM implementations
- Ateji PX, an extension of Java for easy parallel programming on multicore, GPU, Grid and Cloud
- BeanShell, a scripting language which syntax is close to Java
- Ceylon, a Java competitor from Red Hat
- CFML, a scripting language compiled to Java, used on the ColdFusion or Railo application servers
- Quark Framework (CAL), a Haskell-inspired functional language
- E-on-Java, object-oriented programming language for secure distributed computing
- Flow Java
- Fortress, a language designed by Sun as a successor to Fortran, mainly for parallel scientific computing. Product development was taken over by Oracle when Sun was purchased. Oracle then stopped development in 2012 according to Dr. Dobb's.
- Frege, a non-strict, pure functional programming language in the spirit of Haskell
- Golo, a simple, dynamic, weakly-typed language for the JVM developed at Institut national des sciences appliquées de Lyon, France, now an incubating project at the Eclipse Software Foundation.  
- Gosu, an extensible type-system language compiled to Java bytecode
- Ioke, a prototype-based language somewhat reminiscent of Io, with similarities to Ruby, Lisp and Smalltalk
- Join Java, a language that extends Java with join-calculus semantics
- Mirah, a customizable language featuring type inference and a highly Ruby-inspired syntax
- NetLogo, a multi-agent language
- Noop, a language built with testability as a major focus
- Pizza, a superset of Java with function pointers and algebraic data types
- Processing, a visualization and animation language and framework based on Java with a Java-like syntax
- TDLang - Type-Driven Language, the world's 1st Dependently-Typed Object-oriented JVM Programming Language for Type Driven Development. TDLang is Sri Lanka's 1st JVM Language, designed by Asela Damian Perera in October 2016.
- X10, a language designed by IBM, featuring constrained types and a focus on concurrency and distribution
- Xtend, an object-oriented, functional, and imperative programming language built by the Eclipse foundation, featuring tight Java interoperability, with a focus on extension methods and lambdas, and rich tooling
