Both Java Script and JScript are ECMAScript-compliant languages.
Sending data back and forth between the client and server can cause some delays.
However, for some form functions, server-side validation is necessary.
Because the code is stored within the page or within a linked file, it is downloaded into the browser when a user accesses the page and, therefore, doesn't require a roundtrip to the server.
For this reason, client form validation can be faster than server-side validation.
