When developing software customizations for SharePoint and MS CRM 3, javascript is often used. It can easily be confused with the totaly unrelated language java. Mennotk’s blog has a posting linking to another blog that describes in a bit more detail what javascript, jscript and so forth really is. Being a developer in MS CRM and SharePoint, where this is one of my main tools, I found this quite enlightening and it sheds some light on some question marks I personally had on the subject of javascript and client side scripting.
