      We will discuss the relative strengths and weaknesses of Java and C#.
      The discussion will cover the typing systems, error handling, syntax,
      etc. We will explore the question of when it is appropriate to use each
      language and if it is ever appropriate to use both.

      We will discuss various options for scripting the JVM including
      BeanShell, Groovy, and Jython. The discussion will cover the advantages
      and disadvantages of each language and implementation including the ease
      with which they interoperate with the Java language / APIs, performance
      considerations, maturity, and the availability of support.
