Paul Sandoz, Java architect at Oracle, has initiated a proposal to start a new Java project named Babylon. The primary goal will be to "extend the reach of Java to foreign programming models such as SQL, differentiable programming, machine learning models, and GPUs." Babylon can achieve Java's reach to foreign programming models with code reflection, an enhancement to reflective programming in Java, to enable standard access, analysis, and transformation of Java code in a suitable form. Support for a foreign programming model can then be more easily implemented as a Java library.
