Why javascript was choosen in xps v4 print driver? RRS feed

  • Question

  • If we compare xps v3 and xps v4 print driver.

    One major change is:

    Xps v3: There was PTHandler(a compiled dll) to handle the completeprintcapabilities,ptvalidation,devmodetoprintticket and vice versa.

    Xps v4: To do all these job one javascript is there.

    My question is;

    what is the advantage.(Please dont tell me the difference between a compiled file and a interpreted file)

    Why this scripting concept was incorporated in v4?
