Scripting Languages

luajava

LuaJava is a scripting tool for Java. The goal of this tool is to allow scripts written in Lua to manipulate components developed in Java. LuaJava allows Java components to be accessed from Lua using the same syntax that is used for accessing Lua`s native objects, without any need for declarations or any kind of preprocessing. LuaJava also allows Java to implement an interface using Lua. This way any interface can be implemented in Lua and passed as parameter to any method, and when called, the equivalent function will be called in Lua, and it's result passed back to Java.

 

objectscript

ObjectScript is a general purpose object-oriented programming language. It is designed to be simple to learn, easy to use, yet still powerful, combining the convenience of an interactive interpreter with many of the features of Java:

 

beanshell

BeanShell is a small, free, embeddable, Java source interpreter with object scripting language features, written in Java. BeanShell executes standard Java statements and expressions, in addition to obvious scripting commands and syntax. BeanShell supports scripted objects as simple method closures like those in Perl and JavaScript(tm).

 

jython

Jython is an implementation of the high-level, dynamic, object-oriented language Python written in 100% Pure Java, and seamlessly integrated with the Java platform. It thus allows you to run Python on any Java platform.

 

tcl-java

The Tcl/Java project's goal is to make integrating the Java platform and the Tcl scripting language as easy as possible. The project actually consists of two distinct packages, called Tcl Blend and Jacl.

 

jscheme

JScheme is a dialect of Scheme with a very simple interface to Java, called the Javadot notation . This notation provides a transparent access to all Java classes, constructors, methods, and fields on the classpath. JScheme implements all of R4RS Scheme except that continuations can only be used as escape procedures and strings are not mutable.

 

yoix

The Yoix scripting language is a general-purpose programming language that uses syntax and functions familiar to users of C and Java. It does not use reflection to access Java functionality and thus adds value by not only simplifying access to that functionality, but also improving application reliability by coding through Java gotchas and complicated Java features one-time, behind-the-scenes. The Yoix language includes pointers, addressing, declarations, and global and local variables. In addition to supporting native user functions, users can add their own builtin functions written in Java. It is licensed under the Open Source Foundation CPL 1.0.

 

simkin

Simkin is a high-level lightweight embeddable scripting language which works with Java or C++ and XML. Simkin enables you to hand over control of part or all of your application to your users. The language has been designed to be easy enough for non-programmers to use, and easy for you to supply a simple API for them to write to.
