After these basic concepts, the book's topic is moved towards frameworks and patterns. This part of the book describes Apache BSF framework and the Scripting API (javax.script). It also introduces practical advices and design patterns for successful usage of scripting languages in Java projects. At the end, the Web Scripting Framework (javax.script.http) is described with examples of integration of PHP and Java web applications.
