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, Tcl, as well as JRuby, and Groovy using their own libraries.
BSF was created by IBM, and then donated to the Apache Software Foundation, where work on BSF is part of the Apache Jakarta Project.
