May 2024 Updates & News

Welcome to Ortus Solutions’ monthly roundup, where we're thrilled to showcase cutting-edge advancements, product updates, and exciting events! Join us as we delve into the latest innovations shaping the future of technology. Let’s get started!

Welcome to the Era of BoxLang!

Our biggest news as must of you may already know is BoxLang release; a modern, dynamically and loosely typed scripting language for multiple runtimes.

Finally, the wait is over! After a lot of intrigue and almost 10 months of extremely hard work, we can finally tell you about the most important release of the year for us at Ortus:

BoxLang: Multi-Runtime Dynamic JVM Language

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
