Question: ASP vs. JSP?

Answer: Comparing JSP with ASP

Although the features offered by JSP may seem similar to that offered by Microsoft's Active Server Pages (ASP), they are fundamentally different technologies, as shown by the following table:

JavaServer Pages Active Server Pages
Web Server Support Most popular web servers including Apache, Netscape, and Microsoft IIS can be easily enabled with JSP. Native support only within Microsoft IIS or Personal Web Server. Support for select servers using third-party products.
Platform Support Platform independent. Runs on all Java-enabled platforms. Is fully supported under Windows. Deployment on other platforms is cumbersome due to reliance on the Win32-based component model.
Component Model Relies on reusable, cross-platform components like JavaBeans, Enterprise JavaBeans, and custom tag libraries. Uses the Win32-based COM component model.
Scripting Can use the Java programming language or JavaScript. Supports VBScript and JScript for scripting.
Security Works with the Java security model. Can work with the Windows NT security architecture.
Database Access Uses JDBC for data access. Uses Active Data Objects for data access.
Customizable Tags JSP is extensible with custom tag libraries. Cannot use custom tag libraries and is not extensible.
