ASP - Active Server Pages
Active Server Pages (ASP) is an open, compile-free application environment in
which you can combine HTML, scripts, and component calls to create
dynamic and powerful Web-based business solutions.
ASP runs as a service of the Virtual Server
Apache Web Server and is optimized for multiple
threads and multiple users. This means that it's fast, and it's easy to
implement. If you use ASP, you can separate the design of your Web page
from the nitty-gritty details of programming access to databases and
applications. This frees up programmers to do what they do best--code
like crazy--and, conversely, frees designers to worry about just the
design rather than the database.
Files created with Active Server Pages have the extension .asp. With
ASP files, you can activate your Web site using any combination of HTML,
in any language. This means your ASP file is simply a file that can
contain any combination of HTML, scripting, and calls to components.
When you make a change on the ASP file on the server, you need only save
the changes to the file-the next time the Web page is loaded, the script
will automatically be compiled.
Our Virtual Servers support two different implementations of ASP:
Chili!Soft ASP is a Solaris UNIX implementation of Microsoft's Active Server
Pages technology and uses VBScript as its native scripting language.
Apache::ASP provides an Active Server Pages port to the Apache Web
Server with Perl scripting only, and enables developing of dynamic web
applications with session management and embedded Perl code.
