Hi there,ASP is very different to javascript and vbscript. ASP is server side, meaning all the code gets run at the server before the page is sent to a client. Whereas javascript is normally client-side, meaning the code runs in your browser. Because server side code runs before the page is sent, it can influence what is actually sent to the client. This makes it possible to build extremely dynamic sites which run off of databases amongst other things. ASP isn't actually a language though, its a technique which allows you to run your vbscript (or javascript, but normally vbs) at the server, so you can do powerful things.They're just the very basic differences, but if you want to know more about ASP and how to use it, you should really read the ASP tutorial.

Hi Pollux,Thanks for the information. But one more thing I want to know that if ASP is not a language and only a technique then how come we have ASP veriables, objects and some other things like we have in JS or VBS?Thanks in advance

ASP is a language or the concept behind a language. You actually write ASP with JavaScript or VBScript.

As a hosting environment, ASP extends a web server's capability and makes available a set of objects which can be accessed with your programming language. You can think of ASP as a container for your program: your code runs inside this 'container' and communicates with the server through the objects the ASP 'container' makes available.
