ASP Object Creation

Hi,
I receive the following error:
---------------------------------
Server object error 'ASP 0177 : 80004001'

Server.CreateObject Failed

/bruce/wp/js.asp, line 13

Not implemented
---------------------------------

This occurs for the following code written in Javascript:
---------------------------------------
<%@ LANGUAGE="JavaScript" %>
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<TITLE>WP Javascript Test</TITLE>
</HEAD>
<BODY>

<%
test();

function test()
{
var wp = Server.CreateObject("WordPerfect.PerfectScript");

wp.Quit();
wp = "";
}
%>
<br>
hello
</BODY>
</HTML>
---------------------------------------

However, it seems to work through VBScript:
---------------------------------------
<%@ LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT" %>
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<META NAME="GENERATOR" Content="Microsoft FrontPage 4.0">
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<TITLE>WP VB Test</TITLE>
</HEAD>
<BODY>

<%
test

Private Sub test()
      Dim WP

      Set WP = CreateObject("WordPerfect.PerfectScript")

      WP.Quit    

      Set WP=Nothing    
End Sub
%>
hello
</BODY>
</HTML>
---------------------------------------

cheers
Bruce

Your second option is not VB script it is ASP code, you can only create the
server object in ASP. not vb or java script. (see your second example is inbetween
<% and %> this is all asp code.

In java script you have to use
GetObject function or

var wp= new ActiveXObject("WordPerfect.PerfectScript")

RBertora -> Both are ASP one written in VBScript and one written in Javascript.
ASP is not a language as such but a technology.
jkunal -> Thanks a lot for your quick answer.  I did not find that documented anywhere.
cheers

Usually, Server.CreateObject works for JavaScript, too (check with other class strings).

There are always incompatibilites when getting different languages together. VBScript seems to be more tolerant than JavaScript (in MS's implementation).

BTW, in JavaScript, I'ld null;
wp = null
