Not necessarily the case with Clojure? I disagree. Java interop is very easy and fully supported in Clojure.
No worries about the text of the link. Anyway, interop is fine, easy, and idiomatic in Clojure.
I guess I was specifically looking at some older blogs https://leftfold.tech/blog/posts/adopting-clojure-in-a-hostile-environment/#interop-issues and https://metaphysicaldeveloper.wordpress.com/2012/04/20/conjcraft-a-minecraft-mod-implemented-in-clojure/ where they both seem to talk about interop issues and how clojure might differ from Scala or Groovy in that regard but I do admit that some of this is still a bit above my level of current understanding so maybe its a "revisit this later" type of situation once I know may around better
wow appologies, I did not realize it would take the link and then also paste the entire text of one of the articles
