ASP is a server-side scripting engine known for its dynamic generation of web pages. The script mainly written in VBScript, JScript or PerlScript, is interpreted server-side and then sent to the client-side browser for rendering. ASP.NET on the other hand is a powerful programming framework consisting of many object-oriented languages, class libraries and Common Language Runtime. The application developed in ASP.NET can have configurable components, integration to multiple data sources and user interfaces.
Given the power, scalability and overall better application design techniques available via ASP.NET, it’s hard to presume why a developer or business would continue to use Classic ASP. Most modern code will be written in C# using ASP.NET components and features. Migrating from ASP to ASP.NET requires developing an approach that analyzes all the layers of the application.
Macrosoft’s Migrate to .NET team has developed a proven migration methodology. Our team works to understand your business and technical requirements and provide you specific options for your application’s transformation. Our specialized migration QA team thoroughly tests each new application.
There are four main areas that make ASP.NET a much better choice as an enterprise application development framework.
ASP is susceptible to application crashes, due to its processes as IIS needs to be paused or restarted regularly. ASP.NET process is separate from its process spaces, which avoid application crashes and ensures a stable application.
On the other hand, ASP.NET compiles the code the first time it is accessed and the compiled code results in .NET classes housed within assemblies. This allows subsequent page requests to be serviced with previously compiled code. Therefore, ASP.NET inherently delivers a far more secure and efficient rendering model and improved user experience.
With Classic ASP applications, page components are difficult to update, maintain, or replace. Updating a component requires shutting down of the process space, replacing the component and restarting the IIS. This means application downtime.
ASP.NET comes with its built-in capabilities to perform scalable and efficient updates without application downtime. .NET deployment model enables replacement of pages and components by directly changing the code without restarting the web server. The infrastructure accounts for the change the next time a request is made to that altered page or component. Therefore content updates, fixes, and enhancements in an ASP.NET application can be made with little to no impact to the user base.
ASP.NET makes development of robust, rich applications possible with deep programmatic support.
