You can already run JS on the server ...
using Rhino, you mean.
Er, is this news?
Nashorn has been in the works for a while; its effectively been the test bed for a lot of the new dynamic language support coming into the JVM. The name of the project and its existence and goals have been public knowledge, so what else has changed?
"Nashorn will start from scratch, using entirely new code, according to Laskey, with initial source coming from an unnamed Oracle internal project." ???
Maybe I have a different view of starting from scratch. (It is not from scratch if code comes from anywhere else).
Can anyone explain what the above means? It seems paradoxical to me.
Seems nonsense to me.
You may write a site using a JS front end and a PHP backend ... buts thats the only thing I can come up with, and that just ain't the same things as JS on the server, which is then properly discussed in the last bit of the article.
Boot nail: Nashorn is coincidentally the German word for Rhinoceros.
How is it pronounced?
Is it Nash-orn or Nas-horn?
Re: How is it pronounced?
it's actually "NAHS-horn".
