Hi all,

We have an open source scripting engine named Lucee that is used
primarily for web application -- -- it is
written in Java and is usually run as a servlet, but can be accessed in
other ways (like JSR-223).

You can think of the language as a combination of PHP and Javascript,
albeit much simpler and more intuitive IMHO.

I was wondering how difficult it would be to implement a Postgres
extension that will act as a wrapper around it and will allow to write
functions in that language?

I am a Java developer myself and have a very limited knowledge of C/C++,
but if someone can point me in the right direction of whatever
documentation there is on the subject -- that would be great.
