Ceylon is an object-oriented, strongly statically typed programming language with an emphasis on immutability, created by Red Hat. It is based on the Java programming language. Ceylon programs run on the Java Virtual Machine, and can be compiled toJavaScript.


Ceylon aims at solving the following problems its developers experienced with Java:
