Chapter 2. Choosing a Server-Side Scripting Language

Chapter 2. Choosing a Server-Side Scripting Language

When creating ASP pages, developers have a number of scripting languages to choose from. The most frequently used server-side scripting language is VBScript, but ASP is not limited to VBScript alone. In fact, any ActiveX scripting engine can be used as the scripting language for ASP. Microsoft provides two ActiveX scripting engines: VBScript and JScript. PerlScript and Python are two additional server-side scripting languages that can be used in an ASP page.

This chapter introduces these rarely used scripting languages, demonstrating how to accomplish some common ASP tasks. This chapter is not a language reference or tutorial. Extensive online resources and reference books covering the details of these scripting languages already exist.
