Java Implementation of R Language

R is powerful for statistical computing, however, it has its own shortcomings such as difficult to deal with large data, which is one of the motivations of Renjin. I haven't tested it, as described on its page:
Renjin seeks to be a pure Java implementation of the R Language for Statistical Computing.

Project Goals: Build an implementation of R that:
Runs purely in the JVM, including Google App Engine
Fully compatible with (pure) R packages written for R 2.10.x
Compiles elligible, heavily-used closures to JVM byte code
Enables R-language objects to be backed by datastores other than memory

If you happen to use Java and want to test it, download the code @ http://code.google.com/p/renjin/
