Windows® Script Components provide you with an easy way to create powerful, reusable COM components in script. You create script components using any scripting language that supports the Microsoft® ActiveX® Scripting interfaces. Script languages that support these interfaces include JScript, Microsoft® Visual Basic® Scripting Edition (VBScript), PERLScript, PScript, and Python.
Note For more information about ActiveX Scripting interfaces, see the Microsoft Scripting Technologies Web site at www.microsoft.com.
This new script component technology supports common types of COM components, such as Automation, and is extensible with add-ons such as DHTML behaviors.
Using script components, you can create COM components for a variety of tasks, such as performing middle-tier business logic, accessing and manipulating database data, adding transaction processing to applications, and adding interactive effects to a Web page using DHTML Behaviors.
