New JAVA Specification

Huh? A JAVA Topic in Perl News? Heretic you may think. No actually not. This JSR - Java Specification Request covers the topic of creating an API to mutually access information between a scripting language and JAVA.

Perl isn't mentioned directly, but it is clear, that the need for a scripting language will not let JAVA unchanged.

AFAIK there is not only this JSR, but already active work on specification.

    Actually, there's been a framework to embed scripting language support into Java applications for a (relatively) long time.

    Those interested can have a look at IBM Developerworks' BSF project that offers support for embedding a variety of scripting languages into Java applications.

    Of course, it's nice that SUN now is on a similar track.

    Just my 2 cents, -gjb-

      I thought that Java is a scripting language? Whats the difference for this "even more so" support than Java itself?

        No, javascript is a scripting language.
