What is the major difference between JSP and ASP?
As far as similarities I know both are designed to create interactive pages as part of a Web-based application and one difference I know one is Sun's product and another is microsoft's product.

ASP are interpreted, JSP is compiled byte code. ASP is not object oriented, but object-based. To anything useful you have to start relying on COM objects (.dll...) which can become a nightmare with regards to versioning. ASP can use VBScript or JavaScript as the scripting language. With JSP, java is the scripting language which allows you to use harness the full power of java, not just a scaled down version of a language that JavaScript and VBScript are.

Although Java is the default scripting language for JSPs, one can specify other scripting languages like JavaScript e.g., which has no relation to Java BTW...
