I have a program that does some reading of some files, writes files from the data from the read file, matches content of 2 files when multiple files exist.
I want to port this in java. Should i go for some aspects of these to be developed in beanshell? Or would java be fine? Would beanshell give me some performance advantage over java in relation to some of the tasks mentioned above which i need to perform?

Certainly not since it depends on the same underlying Java library and just adds another layer.
Using a scripting language may make for faster development, but thats about it. There are plenty of scripting languages that run on top of Java - Jython, Groovy, etc.
