java script interpreter

Hi,

We are developing one application for smartphone. In this we are
parsing XMLs and rendering it as UI elements using smartphone SDK.
Everything is working fine. Now one more requirement has come. Java
script will also be included in the XMLs. We are searching for java
script interpreters so that we will give our script files to this
interpreters as input andthe output buffer will be pure XML. We have
got one java script interpreter, but it is not taking document.write
kind of things. It is compiling plain functions.

Can anyone help in this search for a java script interpreter for
windows which supports document.write kind of things.
regards

What do you use to send document to the smartphone, webserver?
document.write is function specific for a webbrowser, therefor there
is no standalone JavaScript interpreter that automatically supports
document.write.

What you could do is look into the MS scripting host.
You can just make a myconverter.js file and use it to output parse
the XML documents or you can let your webserver host ASP files. ASP
has JavaScript support and it can output XML.

If that is not what you want maybe you can explain clearer what it is
that you want to do?

Greetings,
Vincent

Pure Javascript (or rather: ECMAScript) doesn't have output
capabilities. The language, as defined by the ECMA 262 v3 standard, is
meant to be used in many different settings. The output capabilities
of ECMAScript interpreters in browsers is provided by the runtime
environment (aka. the DOM).
We have got one java script interpreter, but it is not taking
document.write kind of things. It is compiling plain functions.
Then you should extend its environment with a host function that
does the output when called.

Wikipedia has links to several Jevascript/ECMAScript implementations :
<URL:http://en.wikipedia.or g/wiki/JavaScript#Usag e>
but I doubt that is what you need. Just extend the runtime environment
for the one you have.

No. document.write( ) ist part of both client-side JavaScript up
to version 1.3 and of server-side JavaScript up to version 1.4.
Beyond CSJS 1.3, it is part of W3C DOM Level 1 and 2 HTML which
is in no way restricted to Web browsers. There are more HTML
UAs than Web browsers.
therefor there is no standalone JavaScript interpreter that
automatically supports document.write.


Non sequitur.

JavaScript (note the case) is _not_ ECMAScript. JavaScript is an
*implementation * of ECMAScript. Up to version 1.3 it contained
client-side output capabilities that are further known to be part
of a so-called "DOM Level 0", originating from DOM support back to
Netscape 3 and IE 3. But those capabilities were and, as some of
them are included in W3C DOM Level 1 and 2 HTML, intended for HTML
and XHTML documents and UAs, namely Netscape Navigator considered
an HTML UA, and most of them are not applicable to XML documents/
DOMs and UAs.

It seems a bit pointless to be stating that Netscape's trademark name
"JavaScript " applies to something specific and distinct in response to a
post where the trademark name was never used.

I am very deliberate about the case. I write "JavaScript " when I mean
Netscape's implementation and "Javascript " when I am talking about
the mess of different implementations of ECMAScript in current use.

I know it's a small difference in spelling, but I have found no better
way to make the distinction and still be able to talk about "Javascript "
in the abstract (like "Sure you can implement a countdown in Javascript
for your web page").
JavaScript is an *implementation * of ECMAScript.


Some versions are. Other versions predate ECMAScript v1. But I was not
talking about "JavaScript ", but about implementations of ECMAScript
(e.g., Core JavaScript, or "pure Javascript" as I allow myself to call
it in non-technical terms).
