The main benefits of using Classic Asp are:
A combination of Active Server Pages or ASP with .net framework is ASP.NET. ASP.net provides the most easiest and scalable way build dynamic web applications with comparatively little code needed with classic ASP.
With the new .net Framework Microsoft simplified a lot of complexity with traditional web application development. The classic asp environment allows today’s architects, analysts and developers to spend more time and effort focusing on their clients’ business issues and less time wrestling with the limitations of the technology itself.
It has several functions including interoperability, common Runtime Engine, language Independence, base Class Library, simplified Deployment and security. Benefits of deploying classic asp.net application are many and they are increased Productivity.
Advantages of Classic Asp
Using the code
Using the code is pretty simple. Just include the “WebControl.asp” file and a reference to each Server Control (each one is wrapped in its own ASP file) that you want to use to your ASP page. After you include the references then you need to write code inside each event you want to handle.
The Form is taken care of by the Framework. Just include FormStart.asp when the form starts and FormEnd.asp when you need to clode the form tag. This two includes will make sure that all necessary hidden fields are included. The last thing that has to be done is to the Main () method (included in the WebControls.asp). This method will do the magic. I call it the “Page Controler” because it coordinates the execution of all the events in the appropriate order. This method should only be called after the declaration of all the includes and BEFORE rendering any control.
