Scripted Field for Estimation Accuracy

I would like to a Scripted Custom Field to JIRA issues that adds the sum of remaining estimates with the sum of time spent so far (this includes the current issue and all sub-tasks). It seems that the Scripted Custom Field is the way to do this. Can anyone responde with script syntax that accomplishes this? Thanks.

I figured it out.  For those interested, here is the code:

import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager

def timeWorked = issue.getTimeSpent()
if (timeWorked == null) timeWorked = 0

def timeEstimated = issue.getEstimate()
if (timeEstimated == null) timeEstimated = 0

def subTaskManager = ComponentManager.getInstance().getSubTaskManager();

Collection subTasks = subTaskManager.getSubTaskObjects(issue)

if (subTaskManager.subTasksEnabled && !subTasks.empty) {
    subTasks.each {
        if (it.getTimeSpent() != null) {
            timeWorked += it.getTimeSpent()
       if (it.getEstimate() != null) {
            timeEstimated += it.getEstimate()

return (timeWorked + timeEstimated)/3600
