VBScript and JScript used in ASP : from user's perspective / Marziani Mahmud

Mahmud, Marziani (2005) VBScript and JScript used in ASP : from user's perspective / Marziani Mahmud. Degree thesis, Universiti Teknologi MARA.


Over the last few years the interest in scripting languages has
dramatically increased. These languages have many important advantages over
traditional programming languages. VBscript and Jscript are the most popular
scripting languages use in Microsoft's Active Server Pages (ASP). ASP is one of
the programming languages used to provide interactive and dynamic web
pages. Interactive means that user and server can interact directly to each other
and dynamic web pages is one that can change its contents without having to be
rewritten each time. The research is to determine the scripting languages that
most popular among students and lecturers at Faculty of Information
Technology and Quantitative Sciences (FTMSK) UiTM Shah Alam. It is also
identify which scripting language between VBscript and Jscript can develop
more interactive and dynamic web pages. From this research, new developers
can make it as a guideline in choosing the scripting language to write ASP
pages. The language choices from most of the respondents that answer the
questionnaire are VBscript since it is closely akin to Visual Basic and Visual
Basic for Applications. However, for those respondents that are more familiar
with C, C++ and Java, Jscript is a comfortable alternative for them. The primary
differences between VBscript and Jscript are the syntax of the language, the
sensitivity of the variables and supported browsers for the scripting. In the future
these scripting languages are likely to become the core of most programming
projects because of their power to combine existing components together into a
working application system.
