jvm: Call any JVM function from Haskell

jvm on Stackage LTS jvm on Stackage Nightly

This package enables calling any JVM function from Haskell. If you'd like to call JVM methods using Java syntax and hence get the Java compiler to scope check and type check all your foreign calls, see inline-java, which builds on top of this package.
