Windows.net and ASP
 
     
ASP -Active Server Pages, a specification that generates dynamically created Web Pages. These server side dynamic pages allow user interaction and database connectivity, providing for a wealth of Web Application functionality, such as shopping carts, Newsgroups and Discussion Forums. All of the specialized applications shown on this Coastal Web example site are created with ASP pages. When a Web browser requests an ASP page, the Web server generates a page with HTML code and sends it back to the browser. ASP pages are similar to CGI scripts, but they enable programmers who are familiar with Microsoft's programming languages to work with similar development tools.
