"Languages," "Shells," and the like such as node.js, bash, etc. can be run from a command prompt, with each line intepreted as you go, or from a single text file (*.sh). I'm curious if there is any very-Java like equivalent in terms of syntax, being able to access libraries, etc. I would have guessed Beanshell but the project has been dead for a while. Groovy is interesting but it's is own language. Thanks in advance.
I also just found out that BeanShell lives! BeanShell, to the best of my knowledge, was the most Java-like of the JVM scripting languages. It was abandoned back around 2006, but is alive and well on GitHub as BeanShell2.
