Scripting Products

The scripting technology helps with quick-and-easy development of Web applications. Scripting products on NetWare® simplifies the task of developing NetWare based applications. Developing applications using scripting languages is easier than writing NLM™programs using C/C++. NetWare 6.5 provides a choice of scripting languages for the development of Web applications and administration utilities.

The scripting technology on NetWare includes Novell Script for NetWare, Novell ScriptPages (NSP), Universal Component System (UCS), and open source PHP and Perl.
