Getting Started Using ASP

Active Server Pages (ASP) is proving to be one of the major technologies used in Web and intranet applications development today. If you need to access a database, ASP provides an easy and flexible way to do so. An Active Server Page resides, as the name implies, on the server(s). ASPs are simple in concept—files that are executed on the server that contains both HTML and scripting code. ASP is flexible; it supports VBScript, Java, and JavaScript. An Active Server Page can be called from any HTML page as well as from other ASP pages. Active Server Pages use the extension .asp.

Note

ASP technology was developed for use on Windows NT servers running Microsoft IIS, but has proved so powerful that many companies are now offering ASP technology for other environments as well. Chilisoft, a leader in ASP technology for third parties, offers ASP for many UNIX environments and alternative Web servers.
