Hi there

Re: QScriptEngine vs. QJSEngine? <https://forum.qt.io/topic/23077/qscriptengine-vs-qjsengine>

I was given a task to compare performance scripting solutions in Qt and to my surprise QScriptEngine was the absolute winner of the contest, especially with the ability of keeping pre-parsed script in QScriptProgram. The evaluation of 30.000 expressions was 3-6 *times* better on first evaluation round, 6-30 times on the repeated evaluation (depending on formulae complexity reaching from simple calculation "100 + (5/1.23)" to more complicated 2 line expressions with some variable bindings).

I was truly astonished that QJSEngine performed that miserably at simple calculations as it is the engine powering QML. Maybe QJSEngine-QQmlEngine is optimized toward property notifications/changes, maybe this performance gap is the reason why QtScript was not yet been phased out.
Maybe I am completely wrong in general. Anyone else experienced this?

Thank you for your insights!
