Submission + - Oracle Proposes Nashorn, A New JavaScript Engine for OpenJDK (paritynews.com)

hypnosec writes: Oracle has proposed a new project for OpenJDK – Nashorn, which aims to implement a high-performance yet lightweight JavaScript runtime that would run on Java Virtual Machine (JVM). Nashorn will be headed by Jim Laskey, multi-language Lead at Oracle and the project will be sponsored by HotSpot group. The project proposes implementation of JavaScript such that it can run standalone JavaScript applications via the JSR 223 APIs. Nashorn’s design will enable it to take advantage of technologies like MethodHandles and InvokeDynamic APIs.
