J2V8 is a set of Java bindings for V8. J2V8 focuses on performance and tight integration with V8. It also takes a 'primitive first' approach, meaning that if a value can be accessed as a primitive, then it should be. This forces a more static type system between the JS and Java code, but it also improves the performance since intermediate Objects are not created.
Building J2V8 requires building both the native parts and the Java library (.jar/.aar file). To build the native parts we first build Node.js as a library and then statically link J2V8 to that. The Java parts are built with maven/gradle.
J2V8 uses a cross-platform, cross-compiling build-system written in Python.
