Request for Project Nashorn (Open Source)

Jim Laskey
Senior Development Manager
The request went out to the OpenJDK community last Thursday (November 22, 2012) for Project Nashorn.  http://mail.openjdk.java.net/pipermail/announce/2012-November/000139.html The deadline for voting is midnight December 6, 2012 UTC. If all goes well, we hope to have all the bits in the OpenJDK in time for all to play with during the holiday period. Fingers crossed.

    Is the Nashorn source available anywhere yet? Seems like that's a requirement of reviewing it for inclusion in OpenJDK, no?

    I'm keen to start playing with Nashorn today. Is that possible?

    Not sure how the process works on previews. http://openjdk.java.net/projects/

    Would have liked to have it out there sooner, but... Now we are just tiding up, wrapping in a bow and waiting for the vote.

    The vote is not to accept the code: it's to have a Nashorn project.
