Hi. I'm looking for a scripting engine interpreter for an applet. Essentially I wan't to get the game code non compiled just being plain text. I've ran into some troubles.

What javafx*.jar in the netbeans/javafx/lib files are required. Since as it is now I need to send them over with the applet. Currently i'm just trying to pass off various jpct components. do I need the javafxc.jar. ticking in at about 6mb is a little large.

I can't get the interpreter to run at all. I assume in part it has to do with not running through netbeans. So what would I need to include in my class path to do it.

ScriptEngine fxEngine = mgr.getEngineByExtension("fx");
is returning a null value. I have read that this setting is in the manifest. Is there a work around.

You need javafxc.jar to use the ScriptEngine. Basically the scripting-engine compiles the scripts on-the-fly and runs the compiled code. Therefore you need the whole compiler and that's why it is 6mb.

Here is the code that uses the javafx compiler to compile and run plain text:

Use [b]ProjectManager.runFXCode(...)[/b] method.
