Introduction to JavaScript tutorials

  • JavaScript was released by Netscape and Sun Microsystems in 1995.

  • However, JavaScript is not the same thing as Java.  I repeat: JavaScript is not the same as JAVA.

  • JavaScript was developed by Brendan Eich, then working at Netscape, as a client side scripting language (even though there's no fundamental reason why it can't be used in a server side environment).

  • JavaScript made its first appearance in Netscape 2.0 in 1995 with a name LiveScript.

  • JavaScript is a scripting language that enables web developers/designers to build more functional and interactive websites.

  • Netscape created server-side JavaScript as a CGI-language that can do roughly the same as Perl or ASP.

  • Common uses of JavaScript include:

    1. Dynamic dropdown menus

    2. Form validation

    3. Calculate formula and process results

    4. Functions related to Date, numbers, string and so on.

  • JavaScript usually runs on the client-side (the browser's side), as opposed to server-side (on the web server). One benefit of doing this is performance. On the client side, JavaScript is loaded into the browser and can run as soon as it is called. Without running on the client side, the page would need to refresh each time you needed a script to run.
  • The JavaScript client-side mechanism features many advantages over traditional CGI server-side scripts. For example, you might use JavaScript to check if the user has entered a valid e-mail address in a form field.
  • The JavaScript code is executed when the user submits the form, and only if all the entries are valid they would be submitted to the Web Server.
  • JavaScript can be used to trap user-initiated events such as button clicks, link navigation, and other actions that the user explicitly or implicitly initiates.
  • JavaScript is not a programming language in strict sense. Instead, it is a scripting language because it uses the browser to do the dirty work. If you command an image to be replaced by another one, JavaScript tells the browser to go do it. Because the browser actually does the work, you only need to pull some strings by writing some relatively easy lines of code. That’s what makes JavaScript an easy language to start with.


These days, arguing over whether semicolon is optional in JavaScript seems to be all the rage.

  • Many people say that semicolons are optional in JavaScript. But JavaScript will insert them for you if they don’t exist. So clearly, JavaScript thinks they’re necessary, otherwise it wouldn’t insert them for you. Besides, if semicolons were optional, it wouldn’t be called "Automatic Semicolon Insertion," but instead something like "Automatic Handling of Semicolon-less Code."

Note: Semicolon (;) is required in JavaScript at end of every statements, if you omits it, it will be inserted automatically.
