The others I mentioned are scripted using the JSR-223 interface; not something you'd use for anything really deep. Scala is just Java with the compiler replaced by the same guy who more-or-less wrote the current javac, but allowing himself to define a new language with a lot of the mistakes in the design of the Java language itself mitigated. It's totally OO and totally functional at the same time, yet can use existing Java libraries with an amazing level of transparency.
