I have seen the future, and it is Cocoon...

"We should be willing to embrace ideas like closures, continuations, and 
more dynamic typing—even if it means that Java 3 breaks backward 
compatibility. I'm putting the finishing touches on a book called Beyond 
Java. In Beyond Java, I make the point that conditions are ripe for an 
alternative to emerge. I don't pick what the alternative will be. I just 
show some of the productivity problems with Java and I show the types of 
projects in other languages that are interesting. Frameworks like 
Ruby-on-Rails, Seaside and continuations servers in Lisp and SmallTalk 
could well become catalysts for another language."
