Where can I get a JavaScript interpreter?

Jul 1st, 2008 04:26
Khurram Ijaz, ha mo, Martin Honnen, Nick Jacobs, Randall Krause,


Netscape respectively by now Mozilla has two JavaScript implementations,
one in C (called SpiderMonkey engine), the other in Java (called the
Rhino engine). 
Both are available from 
  http://www.mozilla.org/js/
follow the links there for SpiderMonkey respective Rhino.
There is another Java implementation of JavaScript called FESI:
  http://www.lugrin.ch/fesi/index.html
which like the Netscape/Mozilla Rhino engine allows scripting of both 
JavaScript and Java object including awt and swing objects so you can 
now script complete gui applications with JavaScript.
Microsoft seems to license binary versions of its JScript interpreter. 
Check
  http://msdn.microsoft.com/scripting/
for details.
