All Windows computers do have a Microsoft.NET environment. Part of this environment are the compilers for VB.net, C# and JScript.Net
The jsc.cmd file looks like this:
"C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\jsc.exe" /debug %*
I use it for example for our SharePoint automated mainenance tasks to crosscheck Document Libraries and update Person fields in them.
Now is the time for the famous Hello World!
Here we go!
Create this source file: hello.js
// say Hello to World : )
Compile it with upper jsc.cmd batch file like this:
You will get this file: hello.exe
The file hellp.pdb is for debugging purposes.
Next articles will be about usefull IDEs, examples how to use File System, SQL Data, XML coding, Web Services and my favorite, how to update XML files in a SharePoint Document Library from DOS command line.
Take hold of your future.
