This is a collection of custom tags and libraries that allow you to run a variety of scripting languages directly inside ColdFusion.

For the most part, this is a set of wrappers around the javax.script.* package in Java 6 along with some discrete libraries from Sun's Java Scripting project.

Scripts are compiled and cached in application scope so subsequent execution is extremely fast.

PHP and Ruby are supported out-of-the-box. In future for some languages, you may need to download and install external packages.

PHP relies on the Quercus libraries (a Resin project that implements PHP in Java).

Ruby relies on the JRuby 1.0.0RC2 libraries and Sun's JRuby ScriptEngine.


Java 6 (ColdFusion 8).
