The JSHARPS Web Stack

I need a word for a development stack. A word to describe Java - the platform - leveraged by dynamic languages such as Jython, PHP, JRuby, Rhino etc.

Sort of like LAMP but different, I don't want to capture specifics about OS or Web Server or Database... Just the programming language experiences.

Now Sun have a JSR for scripting on the JVM called JSR 223 which is a start in the right direction.

223 (decimal) is the unicode code point for SHARP S. Thus, JSHARPS.

Pleasing undertones of analogy with C-Sharp. The brave can write it as two characters : a J and the German Eszett.

Just a thought.
