I should have responded to this list, when Pat wrote
me back so promptly, but I didn't have any sense of
what the traffic was like on this list, and didn't
want to add any relatively irrelevent stuff to it.
But Pat wrote me back with a real positive answer,
and lots of comforting details, about how I can be
pretty secure that beanshell is an on-going concern.
That was my only issue. I've read the docs and experimented
with it, and I'm all gung-ho to use it in my application.
Just wouldn't want to use something seriously I'd just
stumbled across on some website. And I'm an applications
programmer. Rolling my own Java-based scripting language
isn't something I feel I have the time, or energy to
do. But as I use it, maybe I can contribute to its developent
by sharing my experience, and offering some suggestions.
At present though, it looks just great to me, and I'm
excited about using it. I tried Pnuts a couple of
years ago, and didn't like it. It seemed cumbersome.
Beanshell seems delightfully straight-forward and clear,
and the interface very intuitive, just what you'd expect,
without expecting anything!
