Server-Side JavaScript

JavaScript is even becoming available on web servers these days, not just in web browsers. Only a few web servers support server-side JavaScript at the moment, but their number is growing. To embed JavaScript to be run on the web server in a web page, you use the <SERVER> element.

This element holds server-side JavaScript code, which is code that runs on the server. For example, here's how you would display a server's Internet address in a web page if server-side JavaScript is enabled:

<HTML>
  <HEAD>
    <TITLE>
      Server-Side JavaScript
    </TITLE>
    .
    .
    .
  </HEAD>

  <BODY>
    .
    .
    .
    Hello - your server's address is 
    <SERVER>
      write(request.ip)
    </SERVER>
    .
    .
    .
  </BODY>
</HTML>
