Scripting Language for the Java Platform

by Krishna Srinivasan

Java 6 provides the Common Scripting Language Framework for integrating various Scripting Languages into the Java Platform. Most of the popular Scripting Languages like Java Script, PHP Script, Bean Shell Script and PNuts Script etc., can be seamlessly integrated with the Java Platform. Support for Intercommunication between Scripting Languages and Java Programs is possible now because of this. It means that Scripting Language Code can access the Set of Java Libraries and Java Programs can directly embed Scripting Code. Java Applications can also have options for Compiling and Executing Scripts which will lead to good performance, provided the Scripting Engine supports this feature.

Why is there still no scripting engine for Perl, one of the oldest and biggest (library support) languages? Does anybody know the answer? Is somebody working on this?
