Preface

Preface

Clojure is a dynamically and strongly typed programming language hosted on the Java Virtual Machine (JVM), now in its fifth year. It has seen enthusiastic adoption by programmers from a variety of backgrounds, working in essentially all problem domains. Clojure offers a compelling mix of features and characteristics applicable to solving modern programming challenges:

  • Functional programming foundations, including a suite of persistent data structures with performance characteristics approaching typical mutable data structures

  • A mature, efficient runtime environment, as provided by the host JVM

  • JVM/Java interoperability capabilities suited for a wide variety of architectural and operational requirements
