Nashorn - Java and Javascript. Shaken, not Stirred

A session at QCon New York 2014

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 the language has been experiencing a revival driven by the interest in HTML5. Nashorn is a modern, high-performance JavaScript engine available on the JVM. It provides direct integration with pure Java programs and it's already included with JDK8 builds. Every Java developer who works on web applications needs to understand how to use and program Nashorn. In this session, besides slides we use live coding demos to introduce 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
