Athena Smalltalk for embedded applications
9 November, 2007
Alexandre Bergel has just announced on the Squeak Dev mailing list his work on Athena, a new Smalltalk environment intended to be embedded in Java programs. Athena comprises a set of tools to use the Smalltalk programming language in an embedded setting. It offers a small (100kB) virtual machine written in Java, a shell, and a set of tools to program Athena from Squeak.
The Athena VM is based on work done by Timothy A. Budd on Smallworld, and is released under the MIT licence.
You can see a video of Alexandre’s talk about Athena at the Squeak BOF at OOPSLA 2007.
