Server-side javascript.

Tonight I played with Mozilla Rhino and a few other toys.

Serving webpages dynamically with javascript on the server-side just feels strange. Ignoring the strange sensation in my brain, the concept of server-side javascript is a good one.

Client-side web scripting is javascript. Server-side is typically not. This means input validation and other common code has to be written in two different languages. This leads to bugs. One language on both ends lets you share lots of code trivially. Neat.
