Java does support dynamically generated classes. This is used by Kawa for its evaluator: Kawa reads a high-level program (Scheme, XQuery, Emacs Lisp), translates it to Java bytecodes, dynamically creates a class, and then calls a method in the class. It is quite fast, allowing for a very responsive read-eval-print-loop combined with fast execution.
