Microsoft® JScript® 5.5 is a general-purpose, object-based scripting language that is based on the ECMA 262 language specification (ECMAScript Edition 3). With a few exceptions, to maintain backwards compatibility, JScript is a full implementation of the ECMA standard.

JScript will be familiar to anyone who uses C, C++, or the Java programming language.

Internet Explorer Mobile 6 provides the host for JScript interpretation; however, you can use JScript in any application that is capable of hosting Microsoft Visual Basic Scripting Edition (VBScript).

Detailed documentation on using JScript, including a language reference, tutorials, and samples, is available at this Microsoft Web site.

Information on the ECMA 262 language specification is available at the ECMA Web site.
