Class JavascriptValueConverter

  • All Implemented Interfaces:

    public class JavascriptValueConverter
    extends Object
    implements ScriptValueConverter
    In case we do not run on a JDK 1.6 from Oracle, the "sun" name-space may not be available. We shield ourselves via dynamic class loading. The javax.scripting API is a nightmare to work with when it comes to converting values in and out of the context of the script.

    We have to rely on these hacks to make it work - luckily everyone is either using Sun's JDK or OpenJDK these days (I hope).e
