  • I don't believe so. However, Java got a built-in JS called Nashorn:

  • What kind of script; what is it for? There might be other ways of accomplishing whatever you are trying to do....

    Hi all, sorry for reply so late but I was busy. I solve my ploblem, it was more easy than I was thinking. Below you can see the solution::

    import java.io.IOException;
    import org.apache.commons.exec.CommandLine;
    import org.apache.commons.exec.DefaultExecutor;
    import org.apache.commons.exec.ExecuteException;
    public class TestScript {
        int iExitValue;
        String sCommandString;
        public void runScript(String command){
            sCommandString = command;
            CommandLine oCmdLine = CommandLine.parse(sCommandString);
            DefaultExecutor oDefaultExecutor = new DefaultExecutor();
            try {
                iExitValue = oDefaultExecutor.execute(oCmdLine);
            } catch (ExecuteException e) {
                System.err.println("Execution failed.");
            } catch (IOException e) {
                System.err.println("permission denied.");
        public void initScript(){
            TestScript testScript = new TestScript();
            testScript.runScript("node  scrip.js");

    The nex step is ass the jar file "org.apache.commons.exec", to do this, go to "Sketch ---> Add File ---> org.apache.commons.exec" and thas it.

    Thanks for your help.
