    Name        : groovy-sandbox
    Product     : Fedora 22

    Summary     : Groovy sandbox for executing untrusted Groovy scripts safely
    Description :
    This project defines a Groovy CompilationCustomizer, which allows a
    program to execute Groovy script in a restricted sandbox environment. It
    is useful for applications that want to provide some degree of
    scriptability to users, without allowing them to execute System.exit(0)
    or any other undesirable operations.
    This compile-time transformation modifies untrusted Groovy script in
    such a way that every operation that can cause interactions with the
    external world gets intercepted. This allows your code to examine and
    deny executions. This includes every method call, object allocations,
    property/attribute access, array access, and so on.
