Client-side and Server-side JavaScript
(Page 1 of 6 )

Most people think that JavaScript is a form of Java, but that is not true. Java is a programming language developed by Sun Microsystems, while JavaScript was created by Netscape to extend the functions a browser can perform.

Uses of JavaScript:

  • Menus for Navigation
  • Form Validation
  • Popup Windows
  • Password Protecting
  • Math Functions
  • Special effects with document and background
  • Status bar manipulation
  • Messages
  • Mouse Cursor Effects
  • Links

There are 3 major types of JavaScript namely:

  1. Client-Side JavaScript (CSJS) -- an extended version of JavaScript that enables the enhancement and manipulation of web pages and client browsers

  2. Server-Side JavaScript (SSJS) -- an extended version of JavaScript that enables back-end access to databases, file systems, and servers

  3. Core JavaScript -- the base JavaScript language

Client-Side JavaScript (CSJS) and Server-Side JavaScript (SSJS) are dependent on the core JavaScript and cannot work without it.
