Maybe not the right place to ask these questions, but I could not find
another place to ask them.
1: What is the roadmap of Nashorn when it comes to EcmaScript 6. The
spec if quite final, mostly bugfixing. Assuming that at some point
EcmaScript 6 will be supported in Nashorn, what is the policy to porting
support back to existing Java versions? Can we expect to see EcmaScript
6 support in Nashorn in Java 8, or would such features only become
available in new Java versions (so 9 or even 10)?
2: We currently integrate with Rhino directly (not the version what was
shipped with Java). One of the features we use is being able to load
using the new Packages(classLoader) syntax (see
http://osdir.com/ml/mozilla.devel.jseng/2002-06/msg00037.html). Is this
supported in Nashorn so way or the other?
