 Hasn´t someone started another Lua-like VM in Java some time ago?
 I believe the project was called Kahlua or something like that...

Yep. This was the announcement in this very list.

To: Lua list <>

Hi everyone!

I am happy to announce that I have made a working Virtual Machine for
(a subset of) Lua in Java.

It is released under the MIT license.
It is currently in a very unstable alpha phase and this is the first
public release.

My goal is to be able to run Lua code on mobile phones (J2ME).
I aim to make the VM behave as close as possible as the regular Lua VM.

I know there is LuaJava but as i have understood it, it isn't purely
Java so it wouldn't work on mobile devices.
I googled on j2me and Lua but didn't find anything on it, except a
post on this mailing list requesting such a product.

All feedback is greatly appreciated, whether it's about the source
code, the documentation, bugs you find, features you're missing.

 There will be a website setup in the next few weeks for at

 I'll make a posting here when we have an initial release.
