It is designed to be a general-purpose language, combining the approachability and
interactive development of a scripting language with an efficient and robust infrastructure

JVM bytecode, yet remains completely dynamic. Every feature supported by Clojure is supported at runtime.
Clojure provides easy access to the Java frameworks, with optional type hints and type inference,
to ensure that calls to Java can avoid reflection
