JavaScript is a scripting language that is mostly used for world wide web
pages to enable some functional content on browsers. ECMAScript is the
international standard for the language and it is usually supported by the
latest browser versions.

Microsoft calls this JScript, but it's exactly the same thing.

But can you use Java Script with JSP Wiki? If so, how to get started with it.

There's a [JSPlugin], and of course you can use JavaScript in your own templates.
