Java introduced scripting support with Java 6.

Heres a simple example showing how to use the JavaScript scripting engine to evaluate an expression.

ScriptEngineManager manager = new ScriptEngineManager();
ScriptEngine engine = manager.getEngineByName("JavaScript");
Object result = engine.eval("6 * (3 + 5)");

    i was using in the same way and my expression is some thing like that 1/11. I was expecting 0.090 as result but it is returning 1. So the question is how to return value in decimal?

    Try 1.0 / 11.0
