David Fetter recounts:As has long been my wont, in about May of 2006, I was looking around forsomething cool to do in PostgreSQL that no one had done before. I figuredperl6 would make a great PL, but there was no implementation at the time, or atleast nothing that looked like it might become embeddable Parrot, despite itslong ride on the fail whale, looked like the most promising way for the longterm, So i came up with a couple of designs inspired by the PL/Java and PL/Jprojects. PL/Java produced working code, although to this day I'm not surethat it's production quality. It did this by instantiating a jvm in eachconnection. PL/J's design was in some sense more elegant, but it never gotanywhere. In PL/J, there was to be some kind of IPC to a java "server." Theproblem is that IPC and little servers are extremely difficult to get right, sofor now, I'm thinking that the PL/Java model has more JFDI.Jonathan "Duke" Leto adds:I started hacking on PL/Parrot in October of 2009 and it started to actually workin April 2010.
