public class GettingScriptEngineByName {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        ScriptEngineManager manager = new ScriptEngineManager();

        // Obtain an instance of ScriptEngine using the engine name. For
        // example we get a JavaScript ScriptEngine instance.
        ScriptEngine engine = manager.getEngineByName("JavaScript");
