BEA plan to support scipting languages on server software

BEA Systems, developer of one of the leading Java Application Servers, Weblogic, have annouced that they are planning on supporting other development languages on the server software, and not just Java.

In particular, they are planning on supporting various scripting languages for the development of aplications to be deployed to their server, namely Jython (a Java flavor of Python), and even possibly Cold Fusion.

This is an interesting change of direction for an applicaiton server vendor who up until this point has been primarily focused on Java, and reinforces the fact that scriptig languages are gaining popularity in the development community.
