Scripting languages are of growing importance, and they are typically dynamically typed. This session discusses improved support for these languages in the JVM, through the use of the new invokedynamic bytecode and through improved support for hot-swapping--modifying code and classes on the fly while maintaining the JVM software's security and integrity.
