Answers for Day 7, “Understanding the Supported Scripting Languages”

1: What does ASP stand for, and who created it?
A1: Active Server Pages—it is a Microsoft creation, but is available on multiple platforms through the third-party ChiliSoft product.
2: What embedded language uses <% %> to denote its start and end tag delimiters?
A2: Both ASP and JSP use this style tag.
3: Can you set a cookie value at any time in JSP or ASP?
A3: No. The value of a cookie is sent to the client browser before any other page contents are delivered. Because of this, the cookies must be added before any data is sent to the client.
4: Can you set a session variable at any time?
A4: Absolutely. Session variables rely on a cookie that already exists on the client computer. Setting a session variable stores a value that is maintained on the server, not on the client.
5: What is the best authoring environment for ColdFusion?
A5: ColdFusion is best authored in the ColdFusion Studio tool from Allaire. Although UltraDev is nice (and the only option for Mac users), it doesn't offer the full integration with CFML that the dedicated Studio environment has.
