I'm not particularly familiar with ASP, but I know that Java Server Pages (JSP) is usually considered as the direct contender.
JSP takes HTML pages with embedded Java code and compiles them to fast-running Java servlets.
To run JSP you will also need a Servlet engine which works with Apache. There are lots of these, both open-source (Apache JServ, Tomcat etc.) and commercial (JRun, ServletExec etc.). They may or may not come with a JSP page-compiler but these are easily available. Checkout as a starting point for all of this, and in particular.

There is a software called Chillisoft that will allow you to run your existing ASP apps on Linux/Apache(or Netscape Fast Track I think).
I agree. Here's the link:
