Hi there,

JavaScript is a programming language, mainly used for client side programming.

jscript is Microsoft's name for their implementation of JavaScript.

jQuery is a framework written in JavaScript to easy client side development.

(Where would we be without Wikipedia)

It's useful to understand JavaScript if you need to program client side behavior. Not everything can be done with jQuery, so you'll still need to understand JavaScript.

Cheers,

Imar

Did you read the articles I linked to? The differences (or lack thereof) are very cleary explained in the second article.

Cheers,

Imar

Hi there,

JavaScript is *not* a product of Safari. JavaScript is a standards based (ECMA) scripting language.

jScript is just Microsoft's name for JavaScript. Learn JavaScript, and you automatically know how to write jScript as the two are (pretty much) the same.

Cheers,

Imar

It depends on what you're looking for. Since JavaScript is a client side language, most of it can be used as-is in any server side environment, including ASP.NET.

If you're looking for ASP.NET AJAX (which uses JavaScript heavily), take a look at this book: http://www.wrox.com/WileyCDA/WroxTit...470392177.html

Cheers,

Imar
