> I took a quick poke around and I now see that the reason AppleScript is located on my system is because ServiceLoader is locating the service configuration file in /System/Library/Java/Extensions/AppleScriptEngine.jar. 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.

jar -uf resources.jar META-INF/services/javax.script.ScriptEngineFactory
