I'm new here, but have you looked at "BeanShell"  ( it's
a a LGPL'd interpreter for JAVA.

so you could use java for scripting (i.e. without the explicit compilation
to bytecode)

just a thought

I thought the Script task was supposed to integrate scripting support?

It uses IBM's BSF (Beans Scripting Framework) to provide scripting
opportunities; I think this is an excellent idea to work from.

I don't think XSLT would be useful : for exemple I want to apply a block
of tasks to each ".xml" file of my directory "xml". For this, I cannot
really use XSLT - and don't really figure out how it could be used.

Anyway, embedding a scripting language would be a really brilliant idea
: I'm convinced that modern app/tools should let the user avoid
technical problems by allowing scripting. For this, I propose the PNuts
scripting language, which is very similar to Java/JavaScript, but with
some very interesting features (packages, gui stuff).

It is a good topic to discuss...So what's your opinion ?
