Interface ScriptEngineFactory

All Known Implementing Classes:

@NonNullByDefault public interface ScriptEngineFactory
This class is used by the ScriptEngineManager to load ScriptEngines. This is meant as a way to allow other OSGi bundles to provide custom script-languages with special needs, e.g. Nashorn, Jython, Groovy, etc.
