JScript 5.5 Overview

The JScript 5.5 feature for Microsoft® Windows® CE .NET provides a run-time engine for parsing and translating Microsoft JScript® code on Web pages and in other host applications. Hosting for JScript 5.5 is provided by Pocket Internet Explorer or by the Browser Control Host (SHDOCVW) in Internet Explorer 6.0 for Windows CE.

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. Effective with Windows CE .NET 4.2, the JScript feature includes optional support for script authoring. Script authoring support allows programmers access to the DHTML Dynamic Properties.
