This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the RadarUnderstand more

Nashorn is a new JavaScript engine for Java that has been released with Java 8. When the exact same code should be run in the web browser and on the server, which is often the case for validation and data migration logic, it is the tool of choice in the Java world, and that is the case despite some rough edges. We are not convinced that using Nashorn to host entire applications, via Node support or the Avatar project, is a good idea.
