humaaaa-- I'm glad you asked this so I can clarify =) The real question is what are the similarities between ASP and ASP.NET ASP.NET is inclusive of ASP, it holds ASP within its framework of many languages. ASP.NET has its own web controls and form controls to offer dynamicness on webpages. ASP.NET blends in the technologies of clientside with server side into one product. ASP.NET contains not only ASP but C#, VB.NET, JScript.NET, etc. This website runs on ASP.NET =)

ASP.NET could be run on non-Microsoft Platforms also. Cassini is a sample Web server produced by Microsoft which, among other projects, has been used to host ASP.NET with Apache.

ASP .NET is more object oriented than Traditional ASP. This script only walks if you have a .NET Virtual Machine. This technic is "adoption" from JVM.

ASP.NET is more object oriented and based on .net architecture....it sperates code and view which lacked in traditional asp. In traditional asp, you have to write both code and view in same file, now in .net, these two things become different...you have on file for code and other for UI hope it helps..plz do respond

the major difference is that asp.net support .net platform but asp doesnt another differences are: 1. asp.net support oops concept but asp doesnt 2. asp.net support can be used with c# and vb.net as well but asp cant 3. asp.net supports event driven programming and xml format but asp doesnt 4. asp.net is easy to use but asp is quite typical and many more differences available overall we can say that asp.net is strong, fully controlled and very much easy to use with better controls than asp.

I am not exactly sure... But sometimes when you build a website, and you end your pages in .asp and sometimes you end in .asp.net... I believe .asp.net would be for a broad network in the website... I am not exactly sure about it.. but when I find out, I will let uou know about it...

Some of the shortcomings of classic ASP: -interpreted and loosely-typed code; -collaboration is difficult because of the mixing of ASP code with HTML; -limited debugging tools; and others. Benefits of ASP .NET: -compiled code; -separation of code from HTML; -XML configurations files -graphical development environment and others.

Of what I know, ASP.Net is the evolution of ASP language. I have read in the following url that: ASP.NET has better language support,a large set of new controls and XML based omponents, and better user authentication. ASP.NET provides increased performance y running compiled code. ASP.NET code is not fully backward compatible with ASP http://www.w3schools.com/aspnet/aspnet_vsasp.asp I hope this helps

if you know about the features and uses of .net,you will not ask this question. usually .net has an in-build facility for changing the data's into machine readable and portable format.so,that only it got the fame..
