Last night we talked about running Javascript dynamically from Java. Java 8 includes Nashorn. Adam Davis describes Nashorn in his new book on Java 8:

"Nashorn replaces Rhino as the default JavaScript engine for the Oracle JVM. Nashorn is much faster since it uses the invokedynamic feature of the JVM. It also includes a command line tool (jjs)"

I've played around with calling JavaScript from within Java -- but only really on toy projects. Would be interesting to hear peoples real world use cases deployed to production.

Chris, There's an article in Java mag about various scenarios using Nashorn. http://www.oraclejavamagazine-digital.com/javamagazine/jan_feb_2014... It also shows how to call Java from within Nashorn. 

Very cool -- Thanks for the link!
