Java Question

Am using Nashorn script engine in java for evaluating expressions,

the below code for

`log`

`ScriptEngineManager mgr = new ScriptEngineManager();`

ScriptEngine engine = mgr.getEngineByName("noshorn");

engine.eval("Math.log(99);");

whereas for

`log10`

`ScriptEngineManager mgr = new ScriptEngineManager();`

ScriptEngine engine = mgr.getEngineByName("noshorn");

engine.eval("Math.log10(99);");

it throws an

`Caused by: <eval>:1 TypeError: Cannot call undefined`

How can i resolve this.Please help.

Answer

The `Math`

that is initialized by default not the java system Math. If you want the java's Math use:

```
var JavaMath = Java.type("java.lang.Math");
```

Then you can use all of the math methods. I am surprised Nashorn doesn't provide the javascript Math Object, which would have log10.
