Hi there,

just wanted to inform you that I submitted a few BSF-related proposals 
for the Apache-Europe-Con (two tutorials, one session): 
<http://www.eu.apachecon.com/>. (Don't know whether any proposal will 
make it, of course.)

As usual, any comments are highly appreciated!

The Jakarta BSF (Bean Scripting Framework)
*/BSF (Bean Scripting Framework)/*
The Jakarta Bean Scripting Framework (BSF) allows Java programmers to 
easily interface with scripting languages for which BSF engine 
implementations exist.

This tutorial introduces the framework invoking scripts and gives 
numerous examples of this aspect of BSF.

Subsequently the framework for creating new BSF engines will be 
introduced such that interested parties will become able to make their 
preferred scripting engines available for use via Java.

Lastly, the implications of BSF and its planned enhancements will be 
discussed, especially with respect to the new scripting interface Sun 
introduces with the next version of Java. One aim of the BSF developers 
is to create a compatible interface which will be available for earlier 
versions of Java.

Introducing Open Object Rexx (ooRexx) with BSF4Rexx
*/Introducing ooRexx & BSF4Rexx/*

*Open Object Rexx (ooRexx) is a powerful object-oriented scripting 
language which was originally developed by IBM and released into the 
opensource via the non profit SIG "Rexx Language Association" in 2005. 
Its OO-model is influenced by Smalltalk, the syntax is very easily 
learned (it looks almost like pseudo-code).

Thanks to the Jakarta BSF (Bean Scripting Framework) it has become 
possible to create a BSF engine ("BSF4Rexx") which allows interfacing 
Java with ooRexx and ooRexx with Java.

Using ooRexx OO concepts and BSF4Rexx it has become possible to 
camouflage Java objects as ooRexx objects. This way one is able to 
create Java programs without employing strong typing at all, using the 
easy to learn, versatile ooRexx language. There will be plenty of 
interesting short nutshell examples.

Automating OpenOffice.org with BSF Scripting Engine(s)
*/OpenOffice.org with BSF/*

*The free and opensource business suite "OpenOffice.org" (OOo) has 
become an important application for deploying OSS in business 
environments. OOo can be (remote) controlled and extended by Java.

If it was possible to apply Jakarta's BSF to interface with OOo, then 
all BSF scripting engines could be used for scripting OOo. In addition, 
starting with OOo 2.0 a Java based scripting interface is available 
allowing any BSF engine to be used as a macro language.

This talk introduces the architecture of OOo, Jakarta's BSF and gives 
nutshell examples (in ooRexx) to automate OOo.*

If any of these proposals make it, we should update the WWW-site to 
reflect the latest information and latest build of BSF (the announced 
patch will be upcoming).
