Java Extension for SQL Server Now Open Source

Nellie Gustafsson announces some exciting news:

Today, we’re thrilled to announce that we are open sourcing the Java language extension for SQL Server on GitHub.

This extension is the first example of using an evolved programming language extensibility architecture which allows integration with a new type of language extensions. This new architecture gives customers the freedom to bring their own runtime and execute programs using that runtime in SQL Server while leveraging the existing security and governance that the SQL Server programming language extensibility architecture provides.

This opens up the possibility for additional languages. .NET languages (C# and F#) would be a natural fit and languages like Go might have enough dedicated support to give this a try.
