Active Server Pages (ASP), later known as Classic ASP or ASP Classic, is Microsoft's first server-side script engine for dynamically generated web pages.ASP.NET, first released in January 2002, has superseded ASP.

History

Initially released as an add-on to Internet Information Services (IIS) via the Windows NT 4.0 Option Pack (ca. 1996), it is included as a free component of Windows Server (since the initial release of Windows 2000 Server). There have been three versions of ASP, each introduced with different versions of IIS:WEB,weblink Web Design Services offer by Visual Solutions, www.visualsolutions-co.com, 18 March 2018,
  • ASP 1.0 was released on December 1996 as part of IIS 3.0
  • ASP 2.0 was released on September 1997 as part of IIS 4.0
  • ASP 3.0 was released on November 2000 as part of IIS 5.0
ASP 2.0 provides six built-in objects: Application, ASPError, Request, Response, Server, and Session. Session object, for example, represents a session that maintains the state of variables from page to page.The session data is kept server-side, the ID is saved as a HTTP Cookie. Source: ASP and Web Session Management, Microsoft The Active Scripting engine's support of the Component Object Model (COM) enables ASP websites to access functionality in compiled libraries such as DLLs.ASP 3.0 does not differ greatly from ASP 2.0 but it does offer some additional enhancements such as Server.Transfer method, Server.Execute method, and an enhanced ASPError object. ASP 3.0 also enables buffering by default and optimized the engine for better performance.ASP remains supported until 14 January 2020 on Windows 7.WEB, Active Server Pages (ASP) support in Windows,weblink Support, Microsoft, 11 August 2015, 30 January 2012, 4.0, The use of ASP pages will be supported on Windows 8 for a minimum of 10 years from the Windows 8 release date.

Architecture

ASP uses server-side scripting to generate content that is sent to the client's web browser. The ASP interpreter reads and executes all script code between tags, the result of which is content generation. These scripts were written using VBScript, JScript, or PerlScript. The @Language directive, the {{tag|script|s|params=language="manu" runat="server"}} syntax or server configuration can be used to select the language. In the example below, Response.Write Now() is in an HTML page; it would be dynamically replaced by the current time of the server.{|! Server side !! What client receives style="vertical-align:top"|The server's current time:|The server's current time:8/11/2015 6:24:45 PMWeb pages with the .asp filename extension use ASP, although some web sites disguise their choice of scripting language for security purposes by using the more common .htm or .html extensions. Pages with the .aspx extension use compiled ASP.NET; however, ASP.NET pages may still include some ASP scripting. The introduction of ASP.NET led to use of the term Classic ASP for the original technology.ASP runs only on Windows. A number of products emulate some of the functionality of Classic ASP on non-Microsoft web servers. Apache::ASP for example ports Classic ASP to the Apache Web Server, but can only interpret PerlScript.WEB, Apache::ASP,weblink 9 October 2013, Sun Java System ASP (formerly ChiliSoft ASP) was a popular and reportedly complete emulator,BOOK, Weissinger, Keyton, ASP in a Nutshell: A Desktop Quick Reference,weblink 9 October 2013, 6 October 2009, O'Reilly Media, Inc., 978-1-4493-7959-9, but it has been discontinued.

The Response object

Can send information to the client, such as the writing of the text on a page or HTTP Cookie.
0 Then
Response.Cookies("name") = Request.QueryString("name")
End IfResponse.Write "Welcome " & Server.HTMLEncode(Response.Cookies("name")) & "!"%>

The Server object

Allows connections to databases (ADO), filesystem, and use of components installed on the server.

The Application object

Stores global variables.

The Session object

Stores variables accessible only to a single visitor.
0 Then
Session("name") = Request.QueryString("name")
End IfResponse.Write "Welcome " & Server.HTMLEncode(Session("name")) & "!"%>

The Err object

Allows the management of errors.
