So in the fall of 1998, Rhino added an interpretive mode. The classfile generation code was moved to an optional, dynamically loaded package. Compilation is faster and when scripts are no longer in use they can be collected like any other Java object.
Here is a simple example showing a Rhino script that outputs each line in the stdin converted to uppercase.
The Rhino Shell can also be invoked with this command:
java -jar js.jar
The advantage is that you don't have to configure the classpath to use this form.
