Red Hat Linux and JavaScripting


Hi

I have installed Red Hat Linux and jre-1_5_0_06-linux-i586.bin(self extracting version).

I want to run HTML files and .js files in Linux environment.The HTML files work fine in Mozilla 1.2.1 browser.However the js files are not working and I am not able to run the HTML course(as it is powered by .js)

What is going wrong here?Can anybody help out?

Is the JRE required for simple javascripting?

In Firefox there is a setting in preferences to turn off JS (its on by default) maybe Mozilla is the other way around?

Is this an online course or local on your machine? make sure the .HTML files are looking in the right place for the JS

Hi Thanks for your response.
Yes the JRE is required for overall navigation, keeping track of pages visited and scores.
I have enabled JavaSscripting in Mozilla and the course is to be an online course.

Is there anything I am missing?

you may need to symlink the mozilla plugin to the correct Java file, checkout their site, it has instuctions along with the download, tells you how to do it.

What version of Redhat? Fedora or Enterprise?

If its Fedora, this link may help you: http://home.gagme.com/greg/linux/fc5-tips.php

I believe he has other links for FC4 and FC3.

I had trouble with jre1-5...etc.


Good luck.

No, Java and JavaScript are completely different technologies that have absolutely nothing to do with each other. Java is a compiled programming language and application platform made by Sun. JavaScript is a scripting language made by Netscape for webpages and interacts with web page elements. Java is run by the JRE. JavaScript is interpreted by your browser. JRE has nothing to do with JavaScript. If JavaScript doesn't work, then check your browser settings or something, or maybe the script is not correctly written.
