Client-side and Server-side JavaScript

This article explains the three major types of JavaScript, client-side, server-side and the core language. Server-side JavaScript is ideal for creating web applications that can be run on any platform, on any browser, and in any language. See the article for other advantages and disadvantages of each.

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

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.
The Future of JavaScript

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.
The JavaScript engine is now available for licensing by third parties for inclusion in their client and server products and various tools.  The engine is available in either C/C++ or Java and includes an API for developers to expose their own objects into the JavaScript programming environment.  (This is how the client browser exposes objects such as window, document, and form, and how the Netscape Enterprise Server exposes the database, DbPool, and other such objects that interact with the LiveWire database service.)  If your client or server application needs a scripting language, you might consider licensing JavaScript, the most popular programming language in history.
