Notes for PR655, by Dr Jan Pajak

PR655 course has 7 credits, or 70 learning hours. It extends for one term, or a half of semester, means for 8 weeks in total. It represents stage 2 (advanced) of client-side and server-side scripting in the JavaScript programming language. It is composed of two parts. Part 1 mainly concentrates on navigation between windows, DHTML, regular expressions, pattern matching, and cascade style sheets. In turn part 2 concentrates on importinmg and spidering web pages, reading disk files located on a server, and connecting Microsoft “Access” Database. Both parts extend for 4 weeks each. Course notes and example programs that I am presenting here are prepared for a Microsoft "Mswebserver" and Internet Explorer.
