Use of Javascipt as local scripting language.

I would like to use html/javascript in some tools to manage a graphical
scripting system for some other development tools.

I am interested in advice and links to IDE html/javascript tools,
dynamic piping and how applications should be executed on a local
computer.

Many Thanks

Walter..

Hi,

> I am interested in advice and links to IDE html/javascript tools


Here are some tools: Windows Notepad, for masochist coders (laughs);
Dreamweaver CS4 (gives some clues and code hints); NetBeans (yes it's
a java tool but it helps a lot with javascript and even php), and at
last Aptana Studio (google for it).

I don't know.

You just need a browser (IE, Firefox, Safari, Opera). But you can
execute JScript in Windows with WSH if you like.

Cheers,
Joao Rodrigues

Thanks for links.

I wasn't clear on the last question I am executing JScript
from windows and I would like to execute a *.exe
(or a .bat) file in a transparent way from html/javascript.
I know the security issues in a normal html/javascript
application. In my case I only need it to execute trusted
apps on the local computer.

I have a fairly complex work flow and a local graphic
representation of what is happening would be useful .

Many thanks

walter..

I have been using Eclipse SDK (now v3.4) with WST (several years) and JSDT
(recently). It might look a bit oversized at first but once you have come
to appreciate the number of plugins it has for virtually any
programming/markup language, size would not matter anymore. And it is free
software, available for several platforms, and for free.

What do you mean by that?

Trusted apps are those that you are allowing the user to run that is running
the script (i.e., the browser). That is beyond the scope of client-side
scripting. In order to run *.exe and *.bat files on Windows systems you
should read on the Windows Script Host (WSH) as João already suggested. It
isn't that hard to find:

<http://www.google.com/search?q=WSH> eventually brings you to
<http://www.microsoft.com/technet/scriptcenter/default.mspx> and

You don't need to run external applications for that. There is SVG and
there is Microsoft VRML. Google is your friend. [psf 6.1]

I am effectively creating scripts for filters using
html/javascript to manage the changes and each
filter combination. The filter code in each case is
an application *.exe or *.bat file. Some of these
change based on a previous step hence dynamic
piping.

I know there are many approaches including
functional languages. This is a good way to
look at what I can do with javascript
