I know VB, want to learn VBScript
Posted on 2000-04-23
I know just enough VB to be dangerous, and need some information about VB Script. I have created a few VB programs for our business and am wanting to offer them over the internet to our customers.
The VB program reads back from an inventory database, giving configuration and pricing options via drop lists, option and check boxes. The output is generated to the screen.
I know that I can design a Java program that will do the same thing, but is Java the right solution?
I will be hosting the site on an NT server with IIS4, only a DSL connection so the scripting can't be overwhelming. I don't think I will see high usage, but I don't want simultaneous connections to be too slow. The database will be SQL, my website is currently FrontPage.
So before I go recode and learn JAVA, can VBscript do what I am wanting? How difficult is it to go from VB to VBScript? How do you recommend I go about this?
All input will be appreciated.
