New Web 2.0 Tools Powered by Currency Server 5

Currency Server 5 can dynamically generate JavaScript code (also known as ECMAScript or JScript) that not only contains a programming interface (the Currency System Script Library), but also embeds in the code file itself the up-to-date currency properties required for operation. This offers several advantages, because as long as the server-side JavaScript code is refreshed periodically by Currency Server as part of regular currency data updates, no further online accesses are required by clients at runtime, resulting in self-contained JavaScript code that is faster, cacheable, simpler, more compatible and less affected by network latencies or errors. This approach offers Ajax benefits without the traditional Ajax communications overhead (e.g. to load external XML or JSON data) and browser requirements.

The code generated by Currency Server was designed to be compatible with JavaScript 1.2 or higher, i.e. with all browsers released since 1997-1998 (Netscape Navigator 4, Internet Explorer 4, and higher).

While we are working on a new generation of web tools based on Currency Server 5 and the Currency System Script Library, feel free to try out the Currency Server software and documentation, which has already been released, and makes it possible for anyone to easily build the same kind of client applications.
