Which Programming Language J. Gosling would use now, except Java?

During a meeting in the Community Corner ( booth) with James Gosling, a participant asked an interesting question: "Which Programming Language would you use *now* on top of JVM, except Java?". The answer was surprisingly fast and very clear: - Scala.

Btw. I will give tomorrow two talks in the community corner one about GreenFire (heating system on Glassfish / Java EE 5 - which saves energy), the another one about underworld  (Java EE 5 / Glassfish backend for virtual reality). So see you if you like!


That should not be a surprise. He has always been a proponent of strong typing, and Scala is the only one in the current crop of languages that provides it.
