Real-world Clojure application
2013-05-23 09:25:44 GMT
Hello, can anyone give a hint on real-world Clojure application? I would like to compare applications written in different dynamic JVM languages with respect to different JVM characteristics. Usually this kind of things are done by means of benchmarking, however, no benchmarking suite exists for scripting languages. Available ones are for Java and Scala. There is also a Programming Languages Shootout Project (http://benchmarksgame.alioth.debian.org/), but the applications there are relatively small and CPU-intensive. Ideally, I would like to have a real-world applications (but not interactive ones, since it's not trivial to make it deterministic and will require automatization of the user behavior) that consume some input and produce some output. In this way I can profile the underlying JVM and collect metrics of interest. I've tried to search on GitHub, but failed. If you read a research paper comparing different JVM languages, what kind of applications you expect to be compared? I'm looking exactly for those ones. One candidate can be Clojure itself, since it's written in Clojure (am I right?), but then the question is what does it mean to "run Clojure on the JVM"? I don't understand how to run it and how to use the javaagent and collect the metrics of the underlying JVM.
