Classic ASP and AJAX

There aren’t many tutorials on the web for Classic ASP and AJAX interfaces. Classic ASP is just about fazed out at most companies, but there are still plenty of legacy applications that use it. There is a lot of confusion about AJAX and what it is. Mainly, it is a client-side application that sends data to a back end parser, and thus the back-end processor can be written in anything from asp to cfm to php to ruby/rails to java and even old-school perl cgi’s.
