Chapter 4. Understanding the Server Tech... > Introduction to Active Server Pages

Introduction to Active Server Pages

UltraDev supports ASP, one of the most popular technologies for creating dynamic Web applications. Dynamic Web applications require a server that can process requests generated dynamically by a browser. The browser can request either static or dynamic content from the Web server. Whereas the Web server can send static HTML pages that have been requested by the browser, it cannot send dynamic content unless an application server associated with a server technology, such as ASP, is installed on it. In the context of dynamic Web applications, the role of the Web server is to process an ASP page and send the results to the browser. To create dynamic Web applications from UltraDev, you need a Web server, which runs an application server that supports ASP pages. ASP pages can run on Web servers such as Internet Information Server (IIS) and Personal Web Server (PWS). (PWS is a scaled-down version of IIS.) Whereas you can only install IIS on Windows NT and Windows 2000, you can install PWS on Windows 95, 98, and NT Workstation.

UltraDev supports ASP 2.0. To use ASP 2.0 with UltraDev, you must install IIS 4.0 on a Windows NT Server. You can also use ASP 3.0 with UltraDev if you have access to IIS 5.0, which ships with Windows 2000.
