Overview

For module development, Visual Gene Developer supports both VBScript (Visual basic script) and JScript (=Java script). Here, although there is a slight difference between JScript and Java script, we simply assume that they are the same language. As an essential web programming language, these two script languages have been widely used for web site development especially for server/client applications. Almost all website documents (html file) contains at least one piece of Java scripts. For example, our website menu also has Java script codes to generate rollover buttons. One of the advantages of these script languages is that they are very easy to learn and use due to the simplicity of their grammar and rules. We expect our programming environment will give a boost to develop new modules for gene analysis and optimization.
