Following the Microsoft supported projects implementing the Python and Ruby scripting languages on the .NET platform, a further project to implement another scripting language for .NET has been announced. The IronJS project now plans to release a Java implementation for the .NET framework's Common Language Runtime (CLR) comparable with IronPython and IronRuby.
The DLR consists of services that co-operate with the CLR to allow dynamic languages to be implemented in the .NET framework. Since previous attempts to integrate Managed JScript, Microsoft's implementation of ECMAScript, on the DLR were unsuccessful, Holmstrom's approach might be of interest to Microsoft.
