Introducing JScript

JScript is one of two default scripting languages supplied by Microsoft to use with the WSH. The other scripting language supplied with the WSH is VBScript. Functionally, JScript and VBScript are pretty much equivalent. Both are great scripting languages for automating small tasks.

NOTE

VBScript is a scripting language based on a subset of the Visual Basic programming language. Like JavaScript,VBScript can also be used for Web page development. However, while Internet Explorer supports VBScript, it does not work with Netscape Communicator. This makes VBScript a less universally accepted scripting language. In addition, VBScript is proprietary.This means that Microsoft owns it, whereas the current version of JavaScript and JScript are based on the ECMAScript standards, so no one company controls its future. As a result, many people prefer JavaScript and JScript to VBScript.
