Icwri is a lightweight, very simple, service-oriented Java built-in script. It can help Java developers build some application interfaces in a service-oriented style. It can also help non-technical people join the development team to write their own application scripts to enforce business rules and decisions. Icwri service providers and consumers can be either Icwri scripts or Java classes. An Icwri script can run all alone, but the primary purpose of Icwri script is to have an assistant language of Java. It can run on any system with JDK/JRE 1.5 or above installed. It does not support Java SE 6 Script Engine because of the service-oriented design and the requirement to support Java SE 1.5 users.

It supports any operating system with Java and a GUI installed, supports complex return types by using response files, and has a modular architecture supporting different functions: simple dialogs (user input, information, question, error/warning), progress indicator dialogs, system tray notifications, file choosers, and file viewers (text and HTML).
