JScript .NET, Part I: The Mechanics
In this column, we lay down the groundwork for JScript .NET. We'll show you how to start working with JScript .NET on your desktop computer. Since we are dealing with server-side applications, you need to have access to a server. Your PC seems to be a good candidate for this. We'll show you how to install the Internet Information Services (IIS) server on your PC. We'll also guide you through the installation of the .NET SDK (Software Development Kit). This application is loaded with documentation, tools, utilities, and compilers.
Once IIS and the .NET SDK are installed, you will be ready to learn the new stuff. We'll cover the .NET Framework and its principles. We'll show you what's new in JScript .NET and the differences between JScript and JScript .NET. We'll teach you how to compile and link a JScript .NET program.
