CS-Script 3.20.0

J# scripts

Among other programming languages CS-Script supports J#/JScript.

There is some ambiguity about the name of the language. MS usually refers Java based syntax for CLR as J#. However MS compiler for this syntax is implemented in Microsoft.JScript.dll. For the purpose of this article the terms JScript and J# are interchangeable.

The J# script compiler is implemented as a pluggable custom compiler (see Alternative compilers). JScript script compiler assembly is deployed and enabled at the time of the CS-Script installation/upgrade.

The script code below is an example of the complete J# script Hello.js from the Implementing non-C# compilers tutorial.

//css_reference "System.dll";
//css_reference "System.Windows.Forms.dll";
import System;
import System.Windows.Forms;

public class Class1 {
    public static function Main() {
        Console.WriteLine("Hello World! (JScript)");
            MessageBox.Show("Hello World! (JScript)")
Note: System.dll and System.Windows.Forms.dll are referenced with //css_reference statement directly from the code. Because automatic assembly loading is not available for non-C# scripts (see Alternative Compilers for limitation details).
