Hi Erik,

I am confused that the default javascript engine (Rhino) is included in 
the pre-build openjdk binary, but is not included in my local build. I 
was trying to do a find to search the classes[1], but classes are not in 
the repository. So I was wonder maybe I was missing some mercurial repos.

Do you mean that openjdk default javascript engine is not the mozilla 
Rhino? (Sorry for the stupid question :-)

I met this problem during I was trying to run the script demo in the 
demo/scripting/jconsole-plugin. The pre-build openjdk binary, downloaded 
from the website, run it well. But local build from mercurial repo threw 
a exception, said "Can not find javascript engine".

[1] classes are :,, etc

Yours Charles
