Event Details

There is a perception in the Java community that JavaScript is a minor-league interpreted language with the main purpose of making Web pages a little prettier.  But JavaScript is a powerful, flexible, dynamically typed language that millions of developers use on a daily basis.  And today, this language has been experiencing a revival driven by the overwhelming interest in HTML5.  Nashorn is a modern, high-performance JavaScript engine available on the JVM.  It provides direct integration with pure Java programs and it's already included with JDK8 builds.  Every Java developer who works on web applications needs to understand how to use and program Nashorn.

In this session you'll get introduced to the latest state of the Project Nashorn. We'll discuss the following topics:
  • What does Nashorn bring to the Java world?
  • What capabilities does it provide for the server and the client sides?
  • How can you leverage Nashorn in the real-life project?
  • How to use JavaScript in your Java application with JSR 223 APIs?
  • Real-world use-cases where Java-JavaScript integration is applicable.
