Just because you sae it on some odd web site doesn't make it true.

ActiveX may be par to JavaScript but it is not in the ECMA Script spec.

Bill...
I almost agree with you but...

I believe it was Netscape that delivered JavaScript to the public domain and it was used as the foundation for ECMAScript.

ECMAScript is a subset of an earlier version of JavaScript.

JScript is Microsoft implementation of Netscape . JavaScript is usually used to refer to in-browser script and, in ASP days, to ASP JavaScript although the environmemnt is not really the same as it is the servers environment.

ECMAScript and true JavaScript know nothing about the server environment whereas JavaScript knows about the DOM and the shell (browser).

The syntax of JScript, JavaScript, ECMAScript, Java, J# are all very similar. They are all based on C and to some degree on C++ but not true versions of these foundation languages. The syntax works in a very similar way but comes up short when it comes to objects and function declaration.

Here is Microsoft's take on this:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/154585

I do not copmpletely agree with their discussion but I believe it is very close.

Here is the Wiki-leek.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ECMAScript

It also is close but not quite I believe.

Novell-Microsoft-ECMA.

The standardization used Microsofts version (or the changes) for a number of reasons.

Later there were law suites. Business suits and unsuitable suits. Sales people were fired. Lies were told and everyone was punished. Microsoft now supports true ECMAScript along with jscript.NET.

Personally I like the latest ECMAScript version. It is preferable in every way to VBScript. JSON should add very powerful client-side mechanisms.

I don't understand. Did you forget some words?

Microsoft supports jscript.NET.

JScript is usable
in-browser. C# IS NOT usable in-browser but only on server.

Same with VBS. It is only usable in a browser on the client, It is not usable in NET or ASP.NET on the server.

Different languages for different environments. C# is usable in app development and web development along with VB.NET.

index - It is too bad you have to do it 999 times but I guess we now know why.

Why would PrimalForms support an idiot language like ECMA on a platform that supports PowerShell. You Unix guys are so funny. YTOu are like a poormans version of Bill Maher.

EXMA is for browser and not fo OS admin tools.

Next year we put PowerShell in the browser too. Then see how your beloved JS is doing.

Genghis Khan also though he was so smart. Now he doesn't even know where he is buried. Do you?

ECMA script is legacy. BlovoScript "HMA" is the new standard. Get it or be square....

I have spoken!
