Subject Re: JSR223 elements performance
Date Sat, 29 Aug 2015 22:40:31 GMT
The various scripting test elements were originally added as a way for
people to prototype code easily.

There was no expectation that they would be used in production
testing; it was thought that people would convert them to Java if they
proved useful.

Scripting languages have improved in performance since then, so it
starts to make sense to use them more.

However, that must not be at the expense of the ability to use them
for prototyping.
By all means, let's improve the performance, but this needs to be done
in a compatible way.
