Which is the official documentation for JavaScript

Hi
I am new to these message boards. I wold like to get some serious JavaScript documentation. Is it necesary to know Java for learning Javascript ? I am looking for some good, serious documentation (but freeware). I would also like to know who made JavaScript.
Thank you.

  • NO, you don't need to know Java to learn javascript. They are two seperate languages, although they converge w/diffreent aspects of each other. Javascript is a client-side scripting language, much simpler than Java, a command-line compiled programming language.

    For documentation, check out Netscape, JavaScript is an open source, or WAS an open-source scripting-language, no one individual created it.

    Actually I do believe the original idea came from Sun Microsystems Inc. You might want to look here at the Sun/Netscape alliance page
