  Scripting language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Scripting languages can be interpreted or compiled, but because interpeters are simpler to write than compilers, they are interpreted at least as often as they are compiled.
Many languages for this purpose have common properties: they favor rapid development over efficiency of execution; they are often implemented with interpreters rather than compilers; and they are strong at communicating with program components written in other languages.
Scripting languages are often designed for interactive use, having many commands that can execute individually, and often have very high level operations (for example, in the classic UNIX shell (sh), most operations are programs themselves).

 Scripting
Scripting languages are less efficient than system programming languages, in part because they use interpreters instead of compilers but also because their basic components are chosen for power and ease of use rather than an efficient mapping onto the underlying hardware.
Scripting languages provided less benefit when they were used for the first implementation; this suggests that any reimplementation benefits substantially from the experiences of the first implementation and that the true difference between scripting and system programming is more like a factor of 5-10x than the extreme points of the table.
Scripting languages have existed for a long time, but in recent years several factors have combined to increase their importance.

The script's responsibility is to pop as many operands from the stack as necessary, perform the calculation, push the result back on the stack, and return the result at the end of the procedure.
For the mortgage calculation, the script checks the stack to make sure that at least three values are available: the principal amount of the loan, the annual interest rate, and the number of years allowed for payment.

 Jakarta BSF - BSF Documentation
Bean Scripting Framework (BSF) is a set of Java classes which provides scripting language support within Java applications, and access to Java objects and methods from scripting languages.
This interface provides an abstraction of the scripting language's capabilities that permits generic handling of script execution and object registration within the execution context of the scripting language engine.
Multiple languages can be supported within a given JSP; this is accomplished by using the BSF taglibs, which are available from the Jakarta Taglibs project.

 HowTo : TGE scripting language reference :. GarageGames
The TGE scripting language uses a fairly straightfoward syntax, but there are some low-level concerns (what's the complete list of reserved words and other tokens?) and high-level ones (how do objects and namespaces work?) that need to be addressed in some detail.
When the engine code calls a script function, it passes handles to identify objects that should be operated on; the script functions in turn often pass these handles around among themselves.
It's possible for the contents of these fields to be accessible by both the script code and the engine code, and in fact that is often the case; in that situation, you of course need to assign a value to the field that makes sense for the type of information it's supposed to be holding.

The reader must understand that the treatment of the scripting languages in press, and especially academic press is far from being fair: entrenched academic interests often promote old or commercially supported paradigms until they retire, so change of paradigm often is possible only with the change of generations.
More commonly, languages are marketed by a small group of influential writers, and the word-of-mouth hyping extends heirarchically down into the workplace, where a bunch of downtrodden programmers wishing they were having more fun stage a coup and start using a new "forbidden" language on the job.
