ASP is a server-side technology that uses a scripting language to generate dynamic Web pages. As a server side scripting language, ASP uses both built-in and external objects to generate web pages from a web server onto a client machine, generating HTML code to be viewed in a browser over the Internet. ASP also makes heavy use of a scripting/programming language called VBScript. VBScript is syntactically equivalent to the popular Microsoft SDK Visual Basic. VTC author, Gavin Powell, takes you from the basics of creating your first ASP page, through to the complexities of database access and beyond.
