Creating an ASP Page

The first step in building an ASP application is to create an ASP page. ASP pages are plain text files with an .asp file name extension. An ASP page contains optional text (usually HTML and/or client-side scripts), interspersed with one or more ASP script blocks for interpretation by the server.

Any valid HTML page can be a valid ASP page, enabling Web developers to easily transform a static Web site into a dynamic one by adding ASP scripts to existing HTML page. With Sun ONE Active Server Pages, you can write scripts in VBScript or JScript. Saving the page with an *.asp file name extension tells the Web server how to process the script commands.
