I am working on application running on NT (IIS being the web server) wherein client side scripting is in Javascript and server side scripting is done using jScript. This application has to be portyed on to Solaris (WebLogic being the server). Will JScript continue to work properly on Unix as well. Are there any incompatiblities between Javascript and jScript. Where can I find more information about the differances (if they exist at all).
