Re: JSP vs ASP vs Cold Fusion ???
For development of jsp-pages you can use Jrun free licence version, or J2EE
from Javasoft. Or TomCat from same place.
Unfortunately, I agree that with Microsoft you can develop ASP and serve
ASP on products without buying anything more than the NT server. With jsp
you can develop for free - but I haven't found any free solutions for commercial
robustness and business use yet. ASP could be thought as one, although you
do have to buy Windows.
I have no experience of non-windows asp platforms, but I've never heard of
anyone using them in actual production either.
