# scripting

any idea how I can compile a kotlin script using API only? I already collect all the script dependencies using maven and want to package the script into a fat jar. I only need to compile the script itself so I can throw it into a Jar.
Edit: This seemed awfully similar to the above comment, but without the dependson. I handle that myself. I only need to compile the script to .class. Annotations have been stripped from the script to be compiled

below that there is something called

thanks, using the code above I'm able to get class files. However, it results in a single .class with a parent Script class. I was hoping to get individual .class files. I was planning to load the class defined in the script using JNI, and the Jar should look the same to the importing code as code written in regular Java/Kotlin
