Dear Devs,

Today I learned by surprise that the AdoptOpenJDK 8 contains the Nashorn Javascript engine.
Glad that Nashorn is included!

But I thought that both the WebView(HTML5-browser) and the Nashorn-engine were part of the JavaFX project. And that only the Oracle JDK8 contains JavaFX.

So just to make sure;
Do all the OpenJDK flavours-builds include the Nashorn engine, or is there more to it?

Kind regards,
