Nashorn, what is the whole buzz about


archisec Architecture & Security

Room 2 - Schibsted

Monday at 18:30 - 19:00

Project Nashorn - a small addition to the Java 8, that allows to run efficiently run JavaScript on JVM. Many has scratched their head why the heck it's being announced as a big thing for Java. During the course of this talk, I'll try to convince everyone in the room that Nashorn is not only academic toy to play after (work) hours with something. It's a powerful tool with many usages, we'll see couple of 'em.

Whole thing is going to be from Java developer perspective, however non Java speaking folks, should also be able to benefit, especially if you know only Node and want to go beyond. On the same note, it's not another Nashorn vs Node talk! It's all about Nashorn, and each example we'll check out is focused only on it and unique platform features.
