The Bean Scripting Framework is a method of allowing the use of scripting in Java code. It provides a set of Java classes which provides support within Java applications for scripting languages, and also allows access to Java objects and methods. Some examples of languages that can be used in combination with BSF and Java include Python, Jython and Tcl, as well as JRuby and Groovy using their own libraries.
