Nashorn script objects, functions are *not* Java Serializable objects. I 
suggest you "serialize" required data (scope or other JS objects) as 
JSON string and also store the associated script string. If script is 
loaded from same URL and persistent code is enabled ( 
), when you re-load the script, nashorn would use already compiled 
classes. You can call the desired script function passing JSON.parse'd 
string as argument.

This is the closest things I can think of in nashorn world. Any further 
ideas from anyone else on the list?
