      Description

      JEP 335, which will probably be targeted for Java 11, proposed terminally deprecating (i.e., deprecating for removal in a future release, perhaps as early as Java 12 or Java 13) the Nashorn JavaScript engine as part of the Java API. The javax.scripting API "will not be affected", except that it won't work any more because there will be no JavaScript engine.

      This has long-term implications for our Java 11 platform, as any assumption that a JavaScript engine (far less Nashorn specifically) will likely be broken during its lifetime. We need to track the progress of this so that we have a narrative available for our deployers.
