Using Simplified Java for Scripting

I don't always get to use Java for work projects, however I'm frequently writing batch-script type tasks in BASH and the like. I don't currently write them in Java because of the overhead.

Is there a "scriptable java" that mimics/uses Java and the JVM but would work for simple scripting tasks. This would let me continue to practice java idoms, etc. I know Beanshell, but that project has been dead for a while, and I don't believe Groovy cleaves to Java syntax.

Thanks in advance.
I agree. Here's the link:
