Depends on what you want to use it for. For web development PHP is very popular. On the client Perl and Python have a lot of traction. On Windows you can probably add VBScript to that list. I wouldn't think that you'd need to know one for a QA position.

This is a highly questionable statement. JavaScript is really only fashionable in client-side web scripting (and there it's the only viable choice). The question may well be about client-side scripting outside of the browser, or about web scripting on the server. Unless you know something about the poster that we don't, it's not possible to say what might be best.

U r right it's not possible to say what might be best. COZ he is working with JAVA technology (SCJP1.4) that�s why I suggested him to choose JavaScript.

Thanks & regards

Definitely PERL. A lot of companies want candidates with some basic PERL knowledge.
Some alternatives are Ruby, Python.
JavaScript should be easy for you if you already know Java.

What about Mercury Testing tools like TestDirector, SiteScope ?

If you are using TestDirector , you may need to automate the test process by writing scripts ( its kinda vb script ) to simulate various test scenario. For SiteScpope its different.

Thanks,
