This dynamic language support is quite interesting. But, I am more interested knowing whether Java support Dynamic Language Development?

For ex., something like;

if (MyClass instanceof "<class / interface Name>") {
// do something.
} else {
// do something else.
}

Where I can supply the "<class/Interface Name>" dynamically at runtime is that at all possible? Is that what this Dynamic Language Support of Java 6.0 does? This will be a real cool feature.

In other languages (including scripting) you can actually change/write a new program behaviour using dynamic development.

For eg., Using eval you can call a function or validate a string to an object in Java Script.

You can do similar or more things in PERL, PHP an so on.

Java didn't support any of the above feature until Java 5.0 as far as I know. Can I do the above in Java 6.0?

Thanks.
