With the explosion of the World Wide Web in recent years, Web applications have become more interactive and users have become more demanding. This is quite different from the text-based newsgroups and FTP sites first served up by educational institution mainframes years ago. Technology and the Internet have certainly come a long way in two decades. With the onset of the Internet, several new programming languages came about, with JavaScript being one of them. Today JavaScript has not only become a frequently used buzzword by Internet-savvy users, but it also is now a scripting must among Internet developers. JavaScript is definitely a great asset to Web development and is now even more entwined in the Integrated Development Environment (IDE) in Domino 6.

This chapter gives you some background on JavaScript, details on its integration into Domino, and gets you started with JavaScript programming basics. Chapter 17, "Real-World JavaScript Examples," provides some great examples on real uses for JavaScript in Domino. Let's get started.
