Can anybody Tell me is JavaScript Object Oriented Programming or Object Based Programming??

JavaScript doesnt have Classes but it supports Inheritance(A great feature of object oriented property).

Hi,
Thanks For providing me the Link. WE wont get any thing on fighting over declaring JavaScript a Object Oriented or Object Based Programming. It has some features of OOps but It is not fully OOps(Some thing in the Middle) as Java.

Okay can you tell me whether we can use javascript as server side language.??? I have seen a topic written as Server Side JavaScript. If it does work as a server side can it directly handle database queries?

Thanks & Regards

Perhaps the following link provides a little more detailed break-down of the issue. The author classifies javascript as object-based because its objects are based on prototypes.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Object-based_programming

But that doesn't mean that it isn't an object oriented programming language:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Object-oriented_programming

... just that it doesn't have ALL the characteristics related to the definition of OOP.

Yes. And you can also manipulate / run javascript in Java ( javax.script )
