BeanShell JSR - yeah!
Pat has filed a JSR to standarize
BeanShell. Ask any lisp (or smalltalk or ... even just plain emacs elisp) developer - interpreters are really really handy to have around, even when you also have a compiler. Standarizing BeanShell should also help it continue to make an impact in the education community.
Welcome to the JCP, Pat! Hope you enjoy it.
