What Is ASP?

ASP, or Active Server Page, is a server-side language developed by Microsoft. However, it really is not a language at all, but more of a “language holder.” Because you can use several languages inside of ASP, almost anyone with scripting experience can pick up ASP in a short time. This chapter will be using VBScript as the language of choice, but following is a list of the languages that are available:

  • VBScript— Based on Visual Basic. This is the language most used in ASP.

  • Jscript— Based on JavaScript. This is the second most popular choice of language for ASP.

  • Python— A popular development language.

  • PerlScript— Based on Perl.
