Active Server Pages and the Active Server Platform

The Active Server Platform refers to Microsoft's take on server-side application development. As with the Active Desktop, you can author on the server side with three standard components: HTML, scripting, and software components, such as Java applets and ActiveX server components. This enables you to leverage your client-side development skills to start building dynamic applications on your server.

In addition, you can take advantage of a number of Microsoft server technologies and services, such as Transaction Server, Merchant Server, Proxy Server, and so on, to implement specialized business solutions. Microsoft's server technology is tightly integrated with Windows NT operating system and Internet Information Server (IIS). As a result, your Active Platform solution will benefit from the operating system's services and features. Your Web application, for example, can inherit Windows NT's built-in security mechanism.
