Noob question: What is Applecript in Xcode?

I’m a little confused. When people say applescript in Xcode are they saying that you can program using Applescript as the language but have the CLR compile to the OBJ-C Binary equivalent?

So in other words, if I don’t/hate Obj C I can use something I’m familiar with? I.e. Applescript.

Not quite. AppleScriptOjC lets you write Cocoa apps using AppleScript – you effectively write an AS version of Objective-C. But the AS stuff is not compiled like an Objective-C binary – it’s handled by a framework loaded at runtime.
