Jeannie is a programming language that combines Java and C. It supports the full syntax of both languages, and adds a backtick operator for nesting Java in C and nesting C in Java. You can use it to implement a feature of your Java application with an existing C library. In this case, you would write glue code that nests C in Java. Another common usage scenario is when you want to enhance your C application with some Java features, such as multi-threading, exception handling, or GUI controls. In this case, you would nest Java code in C.
