Embed Node and V8 into the JVM with Javet

Java always claimed that with the JVM you could, "write once, run anywhere." This was a dubious proposition for most of its lifetime. But now that the JVM officially supports Node and V8, this vision is finally a reality! That's right, your JavaScript code can now run in a JVM!

Who knows, it might even run on a JVM Lambda Handler! You'll need to account for the 15 second cold start but this incredible milestone ensures that no developer with ever again be tasked with the unreasonable and cruel assignment of having to write Java code.
