For what server? On a Microsoft server this is called ASP. You can get information about it at msdn.

I don't think it can be said that server-side javascript will work for any web server. Programming the server is dependant on what libraries the server supports. Since each server has different libraries, they will not all support the same code.
For example, if you were to try to write server-side javascript for a Micro$oft web server like II$, that would be called ASP. It works because the server has ASP.dll registered. The objects in that library are what make ASP possible.
Since that asp wouldn't be available on a Netscape server, or an Apache server, you couldn't make use of that API, and ASP code won't work.
So support for server-side javascript really isn't about the language. It's about the API.

Well, serverside JavaScript is suppoted by iPlanet. Check it out here. BTB, LiveScript is the name Netscape Communications used for the proprietary scripting language built into Netscape Navigator 2.0. It was renamed to JavaScript with Netscape Navigator 3.0 release.

Thank you very much for all the replies. I understand it a lot better now.

Just a thought: Wouldn't it be nice if there is such a web based language that can run in any server.
