This book takes an in-depth look at the ASP concept and maximizing its capabilities. It offers step-by-step instructions for creating entire applications using ASP and reveals correlations between the development process on the iSeries and the same process within an ASP. Because HTML and ASP work hand-in-hand, this book provides an introduction to HTML before fully exploring the ASP concept. Users learn how data access is achieved within an ASP, how to convert an iSeries application into an ASP application, how to use the specific VB Script statements that replace RPG op codes, and how an interactive application in RPG is converted into an ASP. Also included are instructions for creating a complete, fully functional, ASP “shopping cart” application, which reads, writes, and updates data on the iSeries from a Web-based order-entry system. Techniques are presented for passing data among multiple Web pages within a multi-page ASP application.
