Talk:Other JVM Languages
"Support for languages which don't have a compiler will require changes to Robocode which nobody has yet volunteered to implement." I don't think this is entirely correct. Pavel has been hard at work adding support for .NET to Robocode, which I believe would add support for some other languages. Someone who knows more about it should add a note about that, though. --Voidious 16:22, 24 January 2010 (UTC)
I haven't been following his work on that front, but if his work is concentrated on loading .NET assemblies, then the comment is still valid. For non-compiled languages, you would still need some custom code for each language to load the interpreter and parse each source file to find classes which extend Robot.--Duyn 02:35, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
- No, basic ฆcala has already been implemented, as I write below. Sorry =) --Nat Pavasant 10:35, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
Robocode in Other Languages
- .NET Robocode is almost completed. I was just reqested by Pavel to do QA on it. It should be beta release soon. For those who is interested in, Pavel has created jni4net library that connect .NET CLR and JVM through JNI. Earlier he code it just for Robocode, but he and Fnl decided to separated the project for other to use it too.
- I've requested PHP for Robocode too. Take a time search, PHP-Java bridge seems to do well.
- Python and Ruby can be implemented via Jython and JRuby, but nothing has done yet.
