Scripting in JDK6 (JSR 223) Part 1


For sure most of us (mm guess so) have heard about the Scripting provided in Java 6 (Mustang) or JSR 223, 1st time I saw that (just saw the title) I thought that the Java guys will enable us to compile and run JavaScript scripts and that’s the end, well nope that wasn’t what Scripting in java 6 about but actually it is about enabling scripting languages to access the java platform and get the advantages of using java and the java programmers to use such scripting languages engines and get advantages from that (as we will see ).after I got it I was thinking : oh man if the team who implemented the Scripting engine were living in the dark age and they came up with such idea they will be accused of The practice of witchcraft but thanks God we are open-minded now and they will live and the good thing is that they will continue to practice witchcraft :D
So for now java guys will stay alive and continue to do their voodoo stuff and we will be looking at this nice scripting engine.
