I didn't because it's very basic at the moment. You can only use static methods with ints and floats. I like the fact they want to rely on WASM features, like waiting the the GC proposal to be implemented instead actually implementint their own GC. So it's gonna be a long while before we can execute proper JVM bytecode.

However, some projects are doing the opposite as well, run WASM bytecode on the JVM. This in contrast is bound to fail, I believe. One example, the tail call proposal. The JVM simply does not have that kind of feature and trying to emulate it has very tangible limits.

Thanks for the explaination @adam678 (also thanks for adding me). It’s an interesting space!
