BSF4ooRexx is a bridge to allow ooRexx to use all of Java as if it was ooRexx, and at the same time allows Java to employ ooRexx as a scripting language. This bridge has been created using the Apache Bean Scripting Framework (BSF). Java defined its own scripting framework (a.k.a. "JSR-223") which is distributed with Java in the form of the package "javax.script". The next version of BSF4ooRexx implements the necessary interfaces for Java, such that any Java program can use effortlessly ooRexx as a scripting framework, using the "javax.script" package and referring to the ooRexx scripting engine by its name "rexx". This talk will introduce the JSR-223 architecture and the implementation done for BSF4ooRexx. Numerous examples will demonstrate how easy it is for Java programmers to employ ooRexx as a scripting language with this new version of BSF4ooRexx.
