Ceylon

Ceylon

Ceylon is an open source language for writing large programs in teams that is influenced by Java. It is a "higher-order" language partly because functions, classes, methods, and attributes are typed values, and provides a typesafe metamodel.

It has a powerful static type system that prevents many bugs while letting you express more, more easily: union types, intersection types, higherorder functions, mixin inheritance, and enumerated types.

It is a whole platform with a modern SDK designed from scratch. It runs on both Java and JavaScript virtual machines, bridging the gap between client and server. Ceylon is fully interoperable with Java and the Java SDK.
