The JSR (Java Specification Request) 223 was designed to provide support for integrating Java technology and scripting languages by an API and a framework to:
· create web content
· access / control Java objects
· embed scripting environments in Java apps
Jav8 is cross-platform and it works on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux. Binaries for the Windows and Linux platforms are available on the project's homepage.
