JSObject

The public final class netscape.javascript.JSObject extends Object.

java.lang.Object
   |
   +----netscape.javascript.JSObject

Description

JavaScript objects are wrapped in an instance of the class netscape.javascript.JSObject and passed to Java. JSObject allows Java to manipulate JavaScript objects.

When a JavaScript object is sent to Java, the runtime engine creates a Java wrapper of type JSObject; when a JSObject is sent from Java to JavaScript, the runtime engine unwraps it to its original JavaScript object type. The JSObject class provides a way to invoke JavaScript methods and examine JavaScript properties.

Any JavaScript data brought into Java is converted to Java data types. When the JSObject is passed back to JavaScript, the object is unwrapped and can be used by JavaScript code. See the Client-Side JavaScript Guide for more information about data type conversions.
