Hi Budi,
Welcome to the ranch! Does your book touch on hooking script languages into Java apps? I mean something like how to fire up a ScriptEngineManager for javascript .js and read a file, or some similar way of reading, say, a .py or groovy file? I need something very simple, say inside a public static void main block to get me started as a Java-scripting-support newbie!
Thanks very much,
Conor

Thank you for your question.

Unfortunately, not.

That's certainly not something that I'd consider a beginner's topic.

Thanks Budi for your fast response.
Hi Bear, you might be right. I was thinking of someone beginning Java but not beginning programming...if you knew a lot of, say, python or javascript but were new to Java and wanted to use (leverage) scripts you had already written in those languages through a very simple Java app, how would they go about it. Not a topic for a programming beginner, but possibly for someone beginning Java.

Best Regards,
Conor
