Sun Chili!Soft ASP includes the concept of an ASP application, which comprises a hierarchical set of directories that contain the ASP pages and other files used by the application. The root directory of an ASP application contains an optional global.asa file, which stores application state information along with Application and Session information. Using the Application and Session objects with the global.asa file is explained in "Using the global.asa File" in "Chapter 4: Building a Sun Chili!Soft ASP Application."
For an ASP application to be processed, it must be defined on the ASP Server. There are several ways to define an application on Sun Chili!Soft ASP:
· Add the application from the Administration Console, as described in "Adding an ASP Application" in "Chapter 3: Managing Sun Chili!Soft ASP."
· Enable ASP processing for a Virtual Host, as described in "Enabling ASP for a Virtual Host" and "Defining Applications in a Shared Environment" in "Chapter 3: Managing Sun Chili!Soft ASP."
· Use the FrontPage Services file, as described in "Using the Frontpage Services File in a Shared Environment" in "Chapter 3: Managing Sun Chili!Soft ASP."
· Add an application from within the Sun Chili!Soft ASP configuration file, or add an alias from within the Apache Web server configuration file. This is an advanced administration option described in "Defining Applications on UNIX" in "Chapter 3: Managing Sun Chili!Soft ASP."
On Windows NT and Windows 2000, ASP applications are defined by adding aliases or virtual directories to the Web server. Sun Chili!Soft ASP treats each alias or virtual directory as an ASP application. With Apache Web Server, ASP applications are defined by adding an alias to the httpd.conf file. With iPlanet Web Server, ASP applications are defined by adding an "additional document directory" using the Web server's Administration tool.
You can access sample ASP applications from the Administration Console, as described in "Accessing Documentation, Samples, and Diagnostics" in "Introduction: About This Documentation."
