Active Server Pages (ASP) enables Web servers to dynamically generate Web pages and create interactive Web applications by using server-side scripting technology.
The following is a list of all aspects that are part of this managed entity:
An ASP page is an HTML page that contains server-side scripts that are processed by the Web server before it is sent to the user's browser. Server-side scripts run when a browser requests an .asp file from the Web server. ASP is called by the Web server, which processes the requested file from top to bottom and executes any script commands. It then formats a standard Web page and sends it to the browser.
