Nashorn: Java and JavaScript—Shaken, Not Stirred

A session at JavaOne 2013

Monday 23rd September, 2013

6:00pm to 7:15pm (PST)

There is a perception in the Java community that JavaScript is a second-rate interpreted language whose main purpose is to make Web pages a little prettier. But JavaScript is actually a powerful, flexible, dynamically typed language. And today the language has been experiencing a revival driven by the interest in HTML5. Nashorn is a modern JavaScript engine available on the JVM, and it’s already included with JDK8 builds. This presentation is about building polyglot applications with Java and JavaScript.
