ASP Server Components

Unlike build-in ASP Objects, an ASP component is an executable self contained code with specific functions designed for providing one or more objects by performing those specific functions within the component. In general, an object instance is collections of information with specific methods to carry out some predefined procedures for manipulating the properties of an instance of an object by modifying its attributes created by the execution of the corresponding asp component. An instance of the object can be created by assigning a new variable name to the ASP object provided by the ASP component using the ASP Server.CreateObject method. Since the ASP Server.CreateObject method needs the registered name of the ASP component, the ASP component should be registered before the ASP component can be used to provide ASP objects.

The ASP built-in server components are provided to enhance the usability of ASP technology by adding some built-in components to increase the fundamental capability of ASP technology for creating dynamic and interactive web pages. Besides, there are also some base components to enrich the pre-made functions of ASP technology for making dynamic and interactive web pages.

Some IIS pre-made components are not installed for all version of IIS. Ad Rotator, Browser Capabilities, Content Linker, Content Rotator, Counters, Logging Utility, My Info, Page Counter, Status, and tools are not installed with IIS 6.0. However, if you upgrade your Web server from a previous version of IIS, the pre-made components are not removed. Some IIS pre-made components, ASP content rotator and nextlink,  are deprecated in IIS7. And most IIS pre-made components are either not installed with IIS7 or their usage is not supported.

Component Name Component Description
Ad Rotator To create an AdRotator object according to the specified schedule. This object replaces the web banner displayed on the page automatically .
Browser Capabilities To create a BrowserType object. This object determines the version, type and capabilities of each browser that accesses the Web site.
Content Linking To create a NextLink object according to the specified table of contents. This object provides a link to a web page as the continuous page of a book.
Content Rotator To create an Content Rotator object according to the specified web contents. This object replaces the string HTML content on the web page automatically .
Counters To create a Counters object with any numeber of individual counters. This object performs individual create, remove, store, increment, and retrieve counter operation.
Database Access To create an ActiveX Data Object (ADO) object. This object provides access to the information stored in a database or other  forms of tabular data.
File Access To create FileSystemObject or TextStream object. These objects provide access to the file system of the computer and to the input and output of files.
IIS Log component To create IISLog object. This object reads the HTTP activity in the IIS log file generated by IIS.
MyInfo To create a MyInfo object. This object records the personal information of the site administrator name, address, and display settings.
Page Counter To create a PageCounter object. This object counts and displays the number of times a Web page has been opened.

Status To create a Status object. This object has properties that contain information about the server status. Currently, the server status is only available on a personal Web server for Macintosh.
Tools To create a Tools object. This object provides utilities for adding advanced features to Web pages easily.
