A self-contained module introduces the engineering student to dynamic Web based computer architecture and programming. Active Server Pages (ASP) technology allows the designer to harness the interactive and dynamic nature of the Internet, and take advantage of its information and data. ASP combines HTML, Scripting Languages, and Components, which are familiar to students, and relatively easy to master. VBScript, in fact, has a 'basic' language derivative, and therefore is relatively quick for students to understand and pick up. This ASP module has been utilized for electrical engineering sophomore students, but could be readily adapted to other students for web- based applications as well. A big advantage of this Active Server pages module is that with a minimum of instructor and student effort, engineering students can have web-based programming exposure. Sophomore engineering students are encouraged to utilize the Internet, and now they have the proper experience.

ASP Definitions

ASP architecture is based on the client-server model. Active Server Pages is a programming environment that provides the ability to combine HTML, Scripting and Components to create powerful, dynamic, and interactive Internet applications. The APS syntax includes the following items: Server side ‘includes’ (optional) HTML Code Script delimiters Script code Active X components (optional) ASP Objects (optional)

How ASP works

When a user browses an ASP-based site, the following occurs: a. The user (client) requests an ASP page while browsing (a page that has the .asp extension), which is the second part of the URL: b. The browser requests the ASP page from the web server. c. The web server executes all server-site scripts and produces the HTML page for the user/client. d. The HTML page is sent to the user’s browser.

Web services for Internet based computer architecture include the following:
