An ASP file contains both instructions to the server and the HTML mark up.
It pulls and populates from the selected database. It also references
and includes other server-side files to execute or executed by the VB

This can be a nightmare to reverse engineer for a web service, especially
if all the business logic is in the ASP pages and not a middle-tier...

So the real question is, where is the business logic that you are looking

Mind you I'm just hanging onto this technology by my figertips, but
the way I understand it, while the output is HTML, but it's not HTML
until it runs on the server side. Under normal conditions, when an
application such as Visio or FP diagrams a page, it does so on what
it sees when the code is looked at, not when the code is run. I'd
need something that can run the code on the server. Anyone want to
show me I'm wrong? Please?
