Apache Portability

I'm new to Apache (i.e. I just recently downloaded). I'm assuming it is the equivalent to IIS in functionality. Does it support ASP as well as JSP? Right now I'm developing in JSP, but I have existing ASP apps that I'd like to move (without rewriting at the moment). Also, will any of my developed apps be portable from Windows to Linux if I change OS (I suppose this is more dependent on the code).

Thanks.

well,
I am not sure about ASP on Tomcat but I bet you can find out is that possible on the net! I can answer on second part of your question:
yes your code will be portable if you move to another os. That was the whole idea about Java (standardization)!!!

Just be sure to write all your file handling routines so that they are independent of the / versus \ file separator difference. See the java.io.File class JavaDocs for a discussion.

Guess by "Apache" you mean Tomcat and not Apache webServer. ChiliSoft from SUN (!) will provide you the support to run ASPs on Apache webserver- not tomcat.

Guess porting from ASP to JSP is not that simple.
For instance, you might want to move your VB scripts to a bean, rather than having scattered scriplets on JSP..

Guess u will have to re-invent the wheel,rather than doing a 'translation'
