Introducing Managed JScript
It's finally released and I can blog about it. Have been waiting to write about it for some time now and now that it’s out, can talk about it.
Scott Guthrie in his keynote at MIX this week, announced that we are implementing a new version of JSscript implementation to run on top of the .NET platform. This would be called Managed Jscript. Managed Jscript will run on the new DLR, which also got announced at MIX, and interops well with other languages on DLR. So now the Jscript code, works well with not only C#, but also with IronPython , IronRuby, VB among other languages.
And this with the Silverlight platform, running cross browser, cross platform, would mean that the AJAX and other applications that were written with Jscript, would become more easier to write.
Checkout the cool talk about DLR and how various languages interop from Jim Hugunin and John Lam. DLRConsole sample is a cool sample to try the new Managed Jscript and also it’s interop with other languages.
