CGI-Driven JavaScript (Definition)

Using JavaScript in the request - response loop of a web server.

You can use JavaScript to generate the response to a web browser's incoming requests at the web server.

This is a useful and powerful way to extend the CGI capabilities of your web server. Forms handling with products such as ScriptEase WSE (Web Server Edition) are streamlined due to the interpreter having additional features that usefully package the request data before your script is called.
