JSR 223

JSR 223 is the Java Specification Request allowing scripting language programs to access information developed in the Java Platform and allowing scripting language pages to be used in Java Server-side Applications. JSR 223 is all about interaction and inter-operability between Java and scripting languages. More information may be found on the Java Community Process website.

Athena is mostly JSR 223 compliant. It provides a scripting engine and an interpreter. The section dedicated on scripting gives the main line of the JSR implementation.
