Although the AppleScript script engine is included in rt.jar, there isn't in fact a service configuration file for it resources.jar (resources.jar because that is where resources go in the JDK at this time). So I would suggest submitting a bug on this.

I think that may also explain my remaining jrunscript problem. 
ls -l /usr/bin/jrunscript
lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  80 Mar 12  2013 /usr/bin/jrunscript -> /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/Current/Commands/jrunscript
I will probably include that in the bug report as well? Shouldn't openjdk installs replace that link to point to theirs?

I can search my past list posts but whats the preferred bug filing location now?
