Nashorn is an open source JavaScript engine developed by Oracle that is compliant with ECMAScript-262 Edition 5.1. It comes with Java SE 8 and is the successor to the Mozilla Rhino engine, which was introduced in December 2006 as a default Service Provider Interface (SPI) for JSR 223: Scripting for the Java Platform. Both engines are embeddable and are executed “in-process” by the Java Virtual Machine (JVM).

Nashorn is shipped with Java and can be used without any additional configuration or setup and without any external dependencies. This article demonstrates Nashorn’s capabilities, which are particularly interesting in the enterprise space for Java EE projects.
