Nashorn: Java and JavaScript. Shaken, Not Stirred

A session at NYJavaSIG - Nashorn: Java and JavaScript. Shaken, Not Stirred

There is a perception in the Java community that JavaScript is a second-league interpreted language with the main purpose of making Web pages a little prettier. But JavaScript is a powerful, flexible, dynamically typed language. And today language has been experiencing its a revival driven by the interest in HTML5. Nashorn is a modern JavaScript engine available on JVM, and it's already included with JDK8.

In this session you'll get introduced to the latest state of the Project Nashorn:

  • What does Nashorn bring to the Java world?
  • What capabilities does it provide for the server and the client sides?
  • How can you leverage Nashorn in the real-life project?
  • How to use JavaScript in your Java application with JSR 223 APIs?
  • Real-world use-cases where Java-JavaScript interaction is applicable.

This presentation contains some slides + live coding demo.
