- Printing buttons.
- First, Last, Next and Previous page links will link correctly.
Nashorn and Rhino
One of the main reasons we are making our viewer compatible with Nashorn is to take advantage of it’s speed; according to Jim Laskey at Oracle it is three to five times faster than Rhino and a lot smaller to boot!
JSR-223 was designed to make it easy to use scripting engines that run on the JVM, achieving this by having a consistent API. An API that differs slightly to Rhino’s own.
Support for Nashorn will be available in future versions of Jpedal 5 so be on the look out for an improvement when your viewing forms in our viewer!
