Effectiveness of ASP.NET

Active Server Pages (ASP), also known as Classic ASP or ASP Classic, was Microsoft’s first server-side script engine for dynamically-generated web pages. Initially released as an add-on to Internet Information Services (IIS) via the Windows NT 4. 0 Option Pack, it was subsequently included as a free component of Windows Server (since the initial release of Windows 2000 Server). It has now been superseded by ASP. NET.

Developing functionality in ASP websites is enabled by the active scripting engine’s support of the Component Object Model (COM), with each object providing a related group of frequently-used functions and data attributes. In ASP 2. 0 there were six built-in objects: Application, ASPError, Request, Response, Server, and Session. Session, for example, is a cookie-based session object that maintains the state of variables from page to page. Functionality is further extended by objects which, when instantiated, provide access to the environment of the web server; as an example FileSystemObject (FSO) is used to create, read, update and delete files.

In order to evaluate and assess ASP. Net you have to first understand the acronym and then access the support provided. The full form of the acronym is Active Server Pages . Net. This dedicated Microsoft application has been developed to create web pages and wireless or internet enhanced Microsoft . Net web programming technologies.   ASP. net is rife with efficiency and effectiveness and forms an integral part of the software giant’s . Net vision. It is in this capacity that the . Net framework becomes indispensible to web programmers and developers. The end result created is dynamic and sophisticated. Continue reading “Effectiveness of ASP.NET”

Classic ASP versus ASP.net

 

ASP (Active Server Pages) was for the first time was released in December 1996. Since then it has been through major changes and has grown and tailored to the new methods of developing web sites and applications for the internet over the period of time. There are two major forms of ASP:-

Classic ASP and ASP.Net

ASP.Net

In ASP.net major weight is on n-tier architecture in the application development and there is separation of data presentation, business logic and data access layers. In classic ASP these layers are mixed leading to the development of ineffective solutions with huge architecture that are difficult to sustain. The ASP.net offers object oriented approach for the software development where as ASP does not support classes. Only VBScript and Javascript were available for scripting in ASP where as, in ASP.net there are no such restrictions.

How to run ASP on the Mac

I have an old web app that’s using Active Server Pages, and I want to run it on my (Intel) Mac. This is basically not a big deal, because you can simply use Microsoft IIS under Parallels.

But I wanted to use IIS only for ASP files, and let Apache handle the rest. And here’s how to make sure IIS only handles what it’s supposed to:

1. Make a share of your Webserver Root directory in Parallels.
2. On the PC, in the IIS Control Panel, click on the default Website, click on Properties, then choose Home Directory, select that the content should come from A Share located on another computer and enter .PSFyoursharename as the network directory.
3. Make sure you allow ASP under Web Service Extensions
4. On the Mac, uncomment the following lines in /private -> etc -> httpd -> httpd.conf (remove the #’s):

      LoadModule rewrite_module
      libexec/httpd/mod_rewrite.so
      LoadModule proxy_module
      libexec/httpd/libproxy.so
      AddModule mod_rewrite.c
      AddModule mod_proxy.c
