Purging and Sorting the List[edit]

The list contains a lot of projects that have been abandoned or discontinued. (like Rhinola, last (alpha/beta) release in 2005)
Further, it would be useful to sort the entries into categories. It's doesn't make much sense to put something like jsext in the same list as Myna olr Helma.

What is SS-JS / Cleanup tag[edit]

I want to know how we can say that Javascript is server side scripting bcz as we know it is client side scripting

I add the cleanup tag, because that was also my missunderdstanding. There is only a list of Server that support SS-JS, but WHAT is it? mabdul 0=* 10:39, 12 December 2008 (UTC)
Perhaps Server-side ECMAScript would be more correct? JavaScript is a scripting language, the main area of usage (that is commonly observed at least) is client side. Just like almost any programming language, it can be used in any area as long as the correct "bindings" (not sure about the correct terminology, but hopefully you understand what I mean) are there, see the Uses outside web pages section in the JavaScript article for some examples.
Bottom-line, SS-JS is a scripting language, (like PHP, ASP, etc.) that are using the syntax of JavaScript/ECMAScript. If I've understood things correctly... --Execvator (talk) 22:00, 12 December 2008 (UTC)
maybe we should split the article in comparion of SSJS servers and [[SSJS] ...? mabdul 0=* 07:08, 13 December 2008 (UTC)
I don't think a split is needed, unless a significant amount of information that cannot be added to the JavaScript article can be found. Though, moving it to Comparison of server-side JavaScript servers or List of server-side JavaScript servers would be a good idea, seeing how that is what this article actually contain. Also, abbreviations (WP:ABBR) should definitely not be used in this case. --Execvator (talk) 17:29, 13 December 2008 (UTC)

Jaxer?[edit]

Shouldn't Jaxer - http://www.aptana.com/jaxer - be on the list? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.229.216.136 (talk) 12:48, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

nodejs?[edit]

Shouldn't NodeJS - http://nodejs.org/ - be on the list? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 130.133.8.114 (talk) 08:16, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

Wakanda?[edit]

How can it be here when it`s no released yet. Probably not exists at all. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 213.208.179.221 (talk) 16:00, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

Table not a useful way to present this data[edit]

I found this table both useful and poorly laid out when I was trying to find out about client-side JavaScript for a new project I wanted to try. For a start, most of the links listed are basically small research projects that were of no use to me. It wasn't til I tried the last (and 22nd!!) link, Jaxer, that I found a genuinely popular and supported implementation of the concept (honorable mention to Appjet, also good but more a webapp host than a cross-platform client-side JS implementation).

I feel certain that this area would be better suited as a worded article than a table. The table could perhaps be moved to a List of Server-side JavaScript implementations page. Instead this article could have paragraphs about the difference between client-side and server-side JS, the history and present of server-side JS, popular implementaions and uses, those kinds of things.

In the mean time I'm going to move the Jaxer and Junction listings from the tail end of the table as the rest seem to be in alphabetical order. --Pipedreambomb (talk) 23:53, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Microsoft preferred SSJS in 2000[edit]

There was a very brief time during the development of .Net in 2000 when Microsoft started publishing code samples for ASP written in JScript as a distinct preference ! "In line with future developments of the Microsoft Scripting platform". Not much trace left - might be able to find some in archive.org ?

Google ["script language JSCRIPT runat server" site:microsoft.com] finds ~1,300 instances of <script language="JScript" runat=server> --87.194.174.252 (talk) 11:52, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

JScript .NET[edit]

Introducing JScript .NET - notable ? --87.194.174.252 (talk) 11:52, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Confusing title[edit]

The title is confusing. Should be "list of javascript server-side frameworks" or "solutions" or something as that. The real article should explains what is ssj. Macaldo (talk) 08:59, 10 October 2009 (UTC)

Jaxer "dead"[edit]

Seeing as I have yet to see compelling evidence that Jaxer is to be considered 'dead,' I will remove that wording for now. Ironmagma (talk) 06:48, 3 July 2010 (UTC)

Dead Links Under Specification[edit]

The first two links both lead to nihonsoft.org, which appears to be dead to me. I've tried checking it on isup.me and that agrees. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.194.161.82 (talk) 11:35, 22 June 2011 (UTC)
