I was following this Node.js entry in wikipedia :

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Node.js


designed for writing... web servers. Programs are written in JavaScript.


Is it possible to write a webserver using javascript???

A web server is a process that accepts HTTP requests and sends HTTP responses. The language it's written in is irrelevant to fulfilling this function.

What do you need an exe for? Something that can interpret (or compile) JavaScript would do nicely. Note that Node.js isn't written entirely in JavaScript - it just allows you to run server-side code written in JavaScript.
