Enclosed you'll find a little archive with a sample using a 
NetRexx-script. The sample stems from the IBM distribution, so you would 
need to change the "bsf" package name to Apache's. After recompiling the 
Java-file, you should be able to enter the following:

    java ScriptedUI ui.nrx

which then should create an awt-frame on the Java side and let the 
NetRexx script edit that window from NetRexx.

YES. There will be a BSFEngine for Rexx *and* Object Rexx for Apache's 
 BSF and I try to get that support included with the free and 
opensourced Rexx-interpreter called "Regina" (cf. 
<http://www.lightlink.com/hessling/>) which is available for practically 
every operating system/platform there is.

At the moment I am changing/enhancing the BSFEngine and have been 
testing it for the (older) IBM BSF package. Once this testing is over, I 
will adapt everything to the actual Apache BSF and making it available 
under the Apache license.

Hope that helps a little,
