BoxLang is a modern dynamic JVM language that can be deployed on multiple runtimes: operating system (Windows/Mac/nix/Embedded), web server, lambda, iOS, android, web assembly, and more. BoxLang combines many features from different programming languages, including Java, ColdFusion, Python, Ruby, Go, and PHP, to provide developers with a modern and expressive syntax.

BoxLang has been designed to be a highly adaptable and dynamic language to take advantage of all the modern features of the JVM and was designed with several goals in mind:

  • Be a rapid application development (RAD) scripting language and middleware;.
  • Unstagnate the dynamic language ecosystem within Java.
  • Be dynamic, modular, lightweight, and fast.
  • Be 100% interoperable with Java.
  • Be modern, functional, and fluent (Think mixing CFML, Node, Kotlin, Java, and Clojure)
  • Be able to support the following runtime environments and future runtimes through modularity:
    • Native OS Binaries (CLI Tooling, compilers, etc.)
    • Servlet Containers - CommandBox/Tomcat/Jetty/JBoss
    • Serverless (AWS Lambda/Azure Functions)
    • JSR-223 Common JVM Scripting API
    • Android/iOS Devices
    • Web assembly
  • Compile down to Java ByteCode
  • Allow backward compatibility with the ColdFusion/CFML Language
