You mean something that looks like Java but isn't Java?

That's precisely what the Oracle v. Google suit is about.  Dangerous
road to go down at this point.

Or do you mean something that isn't even Java, but has a lot of
Java-like features?

I think you're describing "everything else already available in
production".  Plenty of choices.
