Are Nashorn/jjs built in objects documented anywhere?

Nashorn implements ECMAScript 262 Edition 5.1 ( ). Top level "JSON" 
object and it's 'parse' and 'stringify' methods are specified in that 

There are a few nashorn specific extensions - which will be documented 
in "Java scripting programmer's guide" before jdk8 is released.  In the 
meanwhile, you can check out nashorn mercurial repo from here:

and check out $nashorn/docs directory.

Hope this helps,
