I would like to let you all know about some news items relating to BeanShell -
First, a very interesting article by Dawid Weiss is coming up in the November
issue of JavaWorld. Dawid contacted me earlier this summer after having
independently implemented scripted class binding on top of BeanShell. Dawid's
project accomplished, using the BCEL bytecode library, many of the same things
that are now supported in BeanShell version 2.0.
His article discusses how his implementation works and applies it to the
problem of creating dynamic ANT tasks. You can read more on his web site here:
Dawid has graciously asked if I would help add an addendum to the article to
bring it up to date with the changes that have occurred in BeanShell since
the article was written. The target date for the article is: 2003-11-07.
BeanShell 2.0 beta 1 was also discussed in threads on Slashdot.org:
and announced on Elliote Rusty Harold's Cafe au Lait Java news site:
as well as on freshmeat.net.
