Scripting for the Java Platform
By sundararajan on Mar 24, 2006
Some of the performance issues around scripting may possibly be addressed by "compiling" scripts to bytecode on-the-fly (a sort of first level "hotspot" for scripts?). That is where invokedynamic or any other possible improvements from JSR 292 could help. The typing/non-typing "dichotomy" may possibly be addressed by pluggable types.
