Any good Java REPL tool/implementation?

Any good suggestions on a Java REPL implementation like 'scala' and 'python' or 'php -a'?

The java-repl tool works nicely for most situations for me. It is released as a .jar. Hence, it is easy to download and run:

$ wget --quiet -O /tmp/javarepo-428.jar && java -jar /tmp/javarepo-428.jar

One usage example is as follows.

$ wget --quiet -O /tmp/javarepo-428.jar && java -jar /tmp/javarepo-428.jar
