Active Server Pages

There are various methods of implementing "Server Side Scripting". This web site no longer makes use of any Active Server Pages (ASPs), as the legacy Windows platform on which they ran has finally been retired.

Pages using "Server Side Scripting" contain HTML with additional embedded code that is run on the web server before the page is sent to the client. The client never sees the scripted code, only the HTML in the page and any output generated by the code.

The example page that this site used to run using ASP was the "Fortune" page, which picked a random quote (?!) from an SQL Server database. Many apologies to anybody who feels disappointed that this "service" is no longer available...

Active Server Pages are usually scripted using either VBScript (which is what is currently used on this site) or JScript. These two scripting languages are derived from Visual Basic and Java Script respectively. Note that there is no real connection between Java Script and the Java Language!
