ASP/ASP.NET

ASP is an acronym for Active Server Pages, the powerful Microsoft server side language. When a user surfs to a Web site with an ASP page, the Web server determines the content delivered to the user's Web browser. ASP pages are used when content of the page changes frequently. An example of a use for an ASP page is a list that is generated from information in a database. The ASP code on the server side plucks the information from the database and delivers it to the user's browser.

The ASP code is parsed by a DLL (Dynamic Link Library) called ASP.dll. Figure 8-1 shows ASP code that is used to retrieve data from a Microsoft Access database.
