RE: [NH] Question
- Hi Rayburn,
To answer your question - yes! NoteTab is an excellent editor for ASP.
the complexity of the project, I'll alternate between Visual InterDev 6 and
Pro (I'll use NoteTab for the more difficult assignments because I prefer
And yes, I have found ASP to be good server-side technology... if you are
Microsoft databases and servers. ASP is straightforward and there are a lot
books on ASP and web sites to support you ( www.4guysfromrolla.com and
If you know even a little bit of Visual Basic, you'll be cranking out pages
Other server-side technologies to consider are:
Cold Fusion - Most people find CF easier to work with because it is tag
based like HTML.
Last year I worked on a Cold Fusion project and we were able to hire HTML
rather than more expensive ASP programmers and saved a lot of money. On the
CF isn't as extendable as ASP or other server-side languages like PHP and
You can write custom tags for CF, but if you need to do that, I suggest
using one of the
other languages. CF is a good choice for basic shopping carts and forums.
PHP - If the site is being hosted on an Apache server running on Unix, this
is the way
to go. Like ASP, this language is straightforward and works great with open
like MySQL and Postgres. It also does a great job handling forms. The
based on Perl and C so the learning curve is greater than ASP, but it is
learning. On the downside, PHP is a shade slower than ASP, but other than
that it's hard
to find anything wrong with PHP. Check out www.phpbuilder.com to more
Base also has a good tutorial on setting up a web site based on PHP and the
JSP - Java Server Pages are the current big Kahuna of web applications. If
you need to
develop an large sophisticated application, say a web frontend for an Oracle
for an online brokerage firm, you would use JSP because it is very
extendable. You are
able to create custom Java servlets which can do anything you can imagine.
It is also
the fastest web language because you are dealing with compiled objects as
scripting. On the downside, you need to know Java, which has a steep
learning curve. I
think Web Review is running a series on JSP at www.webreview.com
To compete against Java Server Pages, Microsoft is slowly introducing C# for
program. As the name implies, the code is based on C and C++. I haven't
tried it yet, but
it is worth watching.
Hope this helps. Gotta go back to work.
