ONE Active Server Pages Product Home Page Developer Site Version


Defining the Application

An ASP application is synonymous with a directory structure. It represents a collection of files and virtual directories that are intended to work together to create a Web-based application. An application is defined by flagging a directory as the application start point. The application scope then includes all items within the directory and the sub-directories, except those that are included in another application. Applications can include a global.asa file that contains global application information and user session information.

For the Sun ONE ASP Server to recognize and process an ASP application, your administrator must first define the application on the server, as described in Configuring ASP Applications.
