|RE: [eclipse-dev] What's next for eclipse (round 2)|
-----Original Message-----In order to avoid starting any scripting language wars, Eclipse should simply include a BSF (Bean Scripting Framework) binding, so that any number of scripting languages can be used. See http://jakarta.apache.org/bsf/.

If we are about to include some kind of scripting language in eclipse,
I suggest checking "jython", which is the Python language implemented
in Java and gives access to all java classes of the program.
It has a nice feature of compiling the scripts into Java bytecodes, which means it
should be quite fast.
I had a very positive experience with jython, and I believe it is the
right language for scripting inside large Java programs..

- My ideal implementation would be to expose macros using an implementation of Emacs Lisp, then include a record/play function in the UI to activate them. There's already an open source project implementing a large chunk of this (JEmacs) that would be worth investigating.
- This would have the nice side-effect of creating a "plug-in API" for text editing, enabling people to more easily extend the text editor. It would also enable people to create plug-ins by porting things from the huge library of Emacs Lisp add-ins that are already available.
