Have a look at this (part of the documentation of JDK 6):
Scripting for the Java Platform

Java SE 6 includes an engine for one scripting language: JavaScript. You can, however, add more scripting engines to it. Look at this page: https://scripting.dev.java.net/ - it contains a list of more than 20 scripting engines that are available.

There's also an older API for using scripting languages with Java, BSF, which works with a dozen or so languages.
