jlaskey@16147 1 The Nashorn repo is in the process of being migrated to OpenJDK and as such is
jlaskey@16147 2 incomplete in several areas.
jlaskey@16147 3
jlaskey@16147 4 - The build system is not fully integrated. When complete, Nashorn will be
jlaskey@16147 5 installed in its proper location in the JRE.
jlaskey@16147 6
jlaskey@16147 7 - Once integrated, the correct version of the JDK will be wrapped around
jlaskey@16147 8 Nashorn. In the meantime, ensure you use JDK8 b68 or later.
jlaskey@16147 9
jlaskey@16147 10 - The jjs tool has not been implemented in binary form yet. Use "sh bin/jjs"
jlaskey@16147 11 (or bin/jjs.bat on windows) in the interm.
jlaskey@16147 12
jlaskey@16147 13 - The Dynalink component is not fully integrated into Nashorn as yet, but will
jlaskey@16147 14 be when details are finalized.
jlaskey@16147 15
jlaskey@16147 16 - And, finally Nashorn is still in development. To stay up to date, subscribe
jlaskey@16147 17 to at
