In December 1997, Netscape introduced the Netscape Application Server (NAS) for use in enterprise-scale, mission-critical applications that support hundreds and thousands of concurrent users. In contrast, SSJS on the Netscape Enterprise Server is intended for use in workgroup applications that support fewer than a hundred concurrent users.
Using Live Connect, you can communicate with any Java application running on your server, including an NAS "AppLogic." You can create critical portions of your application in NAS and then communicate with them via SSJS. This way you can later migrate your entire application to NAS or reference a given service from another application without having to modify the AppLogic.
CSJS is supported in the Netscape Navigator web browser and has been distributed with the free source available on mozilla.org. SSJS is available in the Netscape Enterprise Server and the Netscape E-Commerce series of products (CommerceXpert, BuyerXpert, SellerXpert, and so forth). Netscape's support of SSJS has continued to increase; SSJS will be supported in future Netscape products.
