ASP is a server side scripting engine for dynamic web pages. ASP pages contain server-side scripts and HTML tags. As a Microsoft Technology, it works with Microsoft IIS webserver. You can’t run ASP apps on other web servers like Apache, SUN Web Server, Zeus Web Server without using a special application such as ChiliASP or InstantASP.

Sun’s ChiliASP will help us to deploy Active Server Pages (ASP) under a UNIX/Linux environment. Without CASP ( chilisoft asp ), we would have to use Microsoft IIS for working with ASP pages. Sun’s ChiliASP is equivalent to Microsoft’s ASP in its syantax. It works same as that of MS ASP. The main advantage of ChiliASP is that it can run on multiple Web servers including Sun Java System and Apache, and multiple operating systems including Solaris, Linux and Windows. But Microsoft ASP runs exclusively on Microsoft’s operating system and Web server (IIS).
