JavaScript finds Harmony

The Web wins, says Nexaweb’s CTO Jeremy Chone analyzing what happened with the ECMAScript working group Harmony decision announced earlier this month. “This is really good for the Web.”

In his view, the debate was whether ECMAScript a.k.a JavaScript was going to become a compiled language or retain its dynamic character. The decision to retain JavaScript’s dynamic quality has now been resolved, Chone told SOATalk. Although he acknowledges that at some level the debate will continue.

Chone’s take on this can be found on his blog.

If you are still trying to figure out what’s what with Harmony, ECMAScript, JavaScript et al, Alex Russell provides some very helpful explanations and definitions on the Ajaxian site.
