javax.script
Class AbstractScriptEngine

java.lang.Object
  extended by javax.script.AbstractScriptEngine
All Implemented Interfaces:
ScriptEngine

public abstract class AbstractScriptEngine
extends Object
implements ScriptEngine

Provides a standard implementation for several of the variants of the eval method.

eval(Reader)

eval(String)

eval(String, Bindings)

eval(Reader, Bindings)

are implemented using the abstract methods

eval(Reader,ScriptContext) or eval(String, ScriptContext)

with a SimpleScriptContext.

A SimpleScriptContext is used as the default ScriptContext of the AbstractScriptEngine..

Since:
1.6

Field Summary
protected  ScriptContext context

Constructor Summary
AbstractScriptEngine()
          Creates a new instance of AbstractScriptEngine using a SimpleScriptContext as its default ScriptContext.
AbstractScriptEngine(Bindings n)
          Creates a new instance using the specified Bindings as the ENGINE_SCOPE Bindings in the protected context field.
 
Method Summary
 Object eval(Reader reader)
          eval(Reader) calls the abstract eval(Reader, ScriptContext) passing the value of the context field.
 Object eval(Reader reader, Bindings bindings)
          eval(Reader, Bindings) calls the abstract eval(Reader, ScriptContext) method, passing it a ScriptContext whose Reader, Writers and Bindings for scopes other that ENGINE_SCOPE are identical to those members of the protected context field.
 Object eval(String script)
          Same as eval(Reader) except that the abstract eval(String, ScriptContext) is used.
 Object eval(String script, Bindings bindings)
          Same as eval(Reader, Bindings) except that the abstract eval(String, ScriptContext) is used.
 Object get(String key)
          Gets the value for the specified key in the ENGINE_SCOPE of the protected context field.
 Bindings getBindings(int scope)
          Returns the Bindings with the specified scope value in the protected context field.
 ScriptContext getContext()
          Returns the value of the protected context field.
protected  ScriptContext getScriptContext(Bindings nn)
          Returns a SimpleScriptContext.
 void put(String key, Object value)
          Sets the specified value with the specified key in the ENGINE_SCOPE Bindings of the protected context field.
 void setBindings(Bindings bindings, int scope)
          Sets the Bindings with the corresponding scope value in the context field.
 void setContext(ScriptContext ctxt)
          Sets the value of the protected context field to the specified ScriptContext.

Constructor Detail

AbstractScriptEngine

public AbstractScriptEngine()
Creates a new instance of AbstractScriptEngine using a SimpleScriptContext as its default ScriptContext.


AbstractScriptEngine

public AbstractScriptEngine(Bindings n)
Creates a new instance using the specified Bindings as the ENGINE_SCOPE Bindings in the protected context field.

Parameters:
n - The specified Bindings.
Throws:
NullPointerException - if n is null.
Method Detail

setContext

public void setContext(ScriptContext ctxt)
Sets the value of the protected context field to the specified ScriptContext.

Specified by:
setContext in interface ScriptEngine
Parameters:
ctxt - The specified ScriptContext.
Throws:
NullPointerException - if ctxt is null.

getContext

public ScriptContext getContext()
Returns the value of the protected context field.

Specified by:
getContext in interface ScriptEngine
Returns:
The value of the protected context field.

getBindings

public Bindings getBindings(int scope)
Returns the Bindings with the specified scope value in the protected context field.

Specified by:
getBindings in interface ScriptEngine
Parameters:
scope - The specified scope
Returns:
The corresponding Bindings.
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if the value of scope is invalid for the type the protected context field.

setBindings

public void setBindings(Bindings bindings,
                        int scope)
Sets the Bindings with the corresponding scope value in the context field.

Specified by:
setBindings in interface ScriptEngine
Parameters:
bindings - The specified Bindings.
scope - The specified scope.
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if the value of scope is invalid for the type the context field.
NullPointerException - if the bindings is null and the scope is ScriptContext.ENGINE_SCOPE

put

public void put(String key,
                Object value)
Sets the specified value with the specified key in the ENGINE_SCOPE Bindings of the protected context field.

Specified by:
put in interface ScriptEngine
Parameters:
key - The specified key.
value - The specified value.
Throws:
NullPointerException - if key is null.
IllegalArgumentException - if key is empty.

get

public Object get(String key)

eval

public Object eval(Reader reader,
                   Bindings bindings)
            throws ScriptException
eval(Reader, Bindings) calls the abstract eval(Reader, ScriptContext) method, passing it a ScriptContext whose Reader, Writers and Bindings for scopes other that ENGINE_SCOPE are identical to those members of the protected context field. The specified Bindings is used instead of the ENGINE_SCOPE Bindings of the context field.

Specified by:
eval in interface ScriptEngine
Parameters:
reader - A Reader containing the source of the script.
bindings - A Bindings to use for the ENGINE_SCOPE while the script executes.
Returns:
The return value from eval(Reader, ScriptContext)
Throws:
ScriptException - if an error occurs in script.
NullPointerException - if any of the parameters is null.

eval

public Object eval(String script,
                   Bindings bindings)
            throws ScriptException
Same as eval(Reader, Bindings) except that the abstract eval(String, ScriptContext) is used.

eval in interface ScriptEngine
Parameters:
script - A String containing the source of the script.
bindings - A Bindings to use as the ENGINE_SCOPE while the script executes.
Returns:
The return value from eval(String, ScriptContext)
Throws:
ScriptException - if an error occurs in script.
NullPointerException - if any of the parameters is null.

eval

public Object eval(Reader reader)
            throws ScriptException

ScriptException - if an error occurs in script.
NullPointerException - if any of the parameters is null.

eval

public Object eval(String script)
            throws ScriptException
Same as eval(Reader) except that the abstract eval(String, ScriptContext) is used.

eval in interface ScriptEngine
Parameters:
script - A String containing the source of the script.
Returns:
The return value from eval(String, ScriptContext)
Throws:
ScriptException - if an error occurrs in script.
NullPointerException - if any of the parameters is null.

getScriptContext

protected ScriptContext getScriptContext(Bindings nn)
Returns a SimpleScriptContext. The SimpleScriptContext:



A SimpleScriptContext returned by this method is used to implement eval methods using the abstract eval(Reader,Bindings) and eval(String,Bindings) versions.
