Java isn't the only competitor in this category. Eiffel will run on
any platform, including the JVM. Eiffel code is far more readable
than Java or C++, it implements the object philosophy more fully than
either of them, and the main compilers for it produce good object
code. It's my choice for cross-platform implementation.
