OK, after some pondering and reading I thing I got the solution which should make everybody happy. Instead of pushing Erlang into the enterprise we 'simply' push the enterprise into Erlang. Modest as I am, I hearby demand a Java to beam compiler. Or better a class2beam perl translator script. Björn, what do you do next weekend? ;)
<br>Erlang is near a brazillion of usefull Java (and other language's) libraries, Java could get access to working concurrency and I can tell my customer that our solution runs under a 'JVM' - an improved one. ;)
<br><br>Just had a look at <a href="http://www.ikvm.net/">http://www.ikvm.net/</a> which, among other things translates Java byte code to .net IL. Programming .net under Java - simply amazing!<br><br>No, serious, I stop dreaming about this topic, I promise. Such a project would be a never ending story and I guess that the differences between .class and .beam are rather fundamental and neither one is built to support the other. But in the unlikely case that someone comes up with a working solution, consider me as your brave tester.
