Question regarding server scripting and browser scripting


Browser scripting is mostly done in cases where the database interactions are not needed (normally validation cases). Compared to browser scripting, the time taken for the a request in case of Server script can be particularly be long  as the request needs to go through the server to get processed  in case of server script. The presence of more server script in the system can have detrimental effects on performance.

Another difference is that browser scripting is not considered as a component of SRF, which is not the case with server scripting.

To summarize Browser scripts are used for:

  • User communications
  • For interacting with different desktop applications
  • Validating and manipulating data, often limited to active or current record.

Server scripts are mainly used for:

  • Operations involving inserting, updating and query.
  • Any access request for data beyond the active or current record.
