(BSF4)ooRexx and Java Web Servers

Publication: Chapter in book/Conference proceedingContribution to conference proceedings

Abstract

BSF4ooRexx is a bi-directional Java bridge for the dynamic scripting language
ooRexx which implements the Java scripting framework and can therefore be employed as a scripting language in many Java contexts. Java based web servers like Apache Tomcat implement the Java2EE/JakartaEE JSP (Java server pages) specifications which allow among other things to extend the JSP's functionality by providing tag libraries ("taglibs"). This article introduces such a taglib ("ScriptTagLibs") that allows any Java scripting language – in this article ooRexx [12] – to be employed for servlet programming and creating HTML content that gets returned as a result of a client's request and how to deploy it on Java based web servers in form of a war ("web application archive") file.
