Chapter 42. Scripting Web Pages on the Server > Introducing ASP.NET Web Forms

Introducing ASP.NET Web Forms

As part of its .NET Framework initiative, Microsoft has released a major upgrade to ASP. This is, of course, Microsoft ASP.NET. The new version reflects several years of experience and enhancement, and it differs considerably from the older ASP technology. Here are some of the limitations ASP.NET resolves:

  • VBScript isn’t suited for developing reusable modules. To use the same code in several pages, you must copy it into each page.

  • Neither ASP nor VBScript has access to the full functionality of the underlying Windows operating system.

  • The practice of putting program code where its output should appear in a Web page doesn’t scale well. In complex pages, code can end up in all sorts of odd places.

  • At many large sites, Web page designers and Web page programmers are two very different groups of people. With the page design and the program code both residing in the same file, conflicts and confusion inevitably arose.
