comment Compile new JVM language down to Java or JVM bytecode?
@Alex (in reply to @Snowman) Please read about compiler construction first. Perhaps then some concepts are more clear. As a starting point I suggest the book Compilers by Aho and Sethi (also known as dragon book).

comment Dealing with states in a immutable approach
@Wagner If everything is immutable (objects and variables) then your system will be immutable. I cannot think of any use of an immutable system...

comment How often should internal applications be deployed?
This completly depends on you. Answers to this question will be highly opinionated. It will range from release several times each day to release all 6 months (or so). The only thing we can say to you is take any approach and make it fit to you (e.g. Agile means release often/release early).

comment Is it possible/good idea to reduce chance of crashing by catching Error?
@Brandon I know that such absolute statements are sometimes wrong. But in general you should really know what you're doing when catching Errors as it can be much worse than let the server dying and restart it...

comment Is it possible/good idea to reduce chance of crashing by catching Error?
@MichaelBorgwardt If you catch an OOME then you cannot create any new object in most cases. So it is difficult to do something useful in an object oriented language. Also all tips with allocating an emergency array can fail as you cannot influence the garbage collector.
