NSUserAppleScriptTask Class Reference
Available in OS X v10.8 and later.
NSUserAppleScriptTask class is intended to run AppleScript scripts from your application. It is intended to execute user-supplied scripts and will execute them outside of the application's sandbox, if any.
The class is not intended to execute scripts built into an application; for that, use one of the
NSTask classes. If the application is sandboxed, then the script must be in the
NSApplicationScriptsDirectory folder. A sandboxed application may read from, but not write to, this folder.
If you simply need to execute scripts without regard to input or output, use
NSUserScriptTask, which can execute any of the specific types. If you need specific control over the input to or output from the script, use this class.
