Why not use J2V8 to replace the current Rhino ?

Hi, 

ThingWorx use Rhino as its JavaScript engine , but Rhino is too slow ,  comparing to V8 its 10 times slower ,  why not use J2V8 (the Java integration of V8) instead ? 

 

Regards,

Sean

Hi @seanccc.

 

The platform predates J2V8. While V8 is certainly faster than Rhino, JS code in services is mainly interacting with Java objects within the platform, not executing high-performance code itself.

 

It's my understanding that alternatives are being discussed, but nothing definitive at this time.  However, I will make sure the Product Managers are made aware of your inquiry.
