ASP Versions?

Hi,
i don't remember if when i buyed Supersuite there was the possibility to do file upload also in ASP. I would like to know if i will have the same possibility in the future. This is why i have a Windows Web Server (with ASP).

Thank you in adavance,
Massimiliano

At the end of last year, we decided to move away from developing Extensions to support multiple server models and focus on PHP only.

All New products and Upgrades that we have released over the last year have supported PHP only. We will not be bringing ASP back into our product line.

Digital File Pro version 1 had support for ASP, however Digital File Pro version 2 does not.

I can understand the disappointment, but the reality is that ASP is a dying language. It is being replaced by ASP.NET which Dreamweaver CS4 and beyond does not support.

Microsoft has done nothing with Classic ASP since 2000. Sure, Newer versions of IIS Still support it, but that will likely not be the case forever.

We moved to PHP support so that we would be able to offer more robust extensions with a a greater feature set. Developing extensions to work in 4 server models caused us to have to scrap certain features that we would have liked to add because it was not a possibility along all 4 server models. By focusing on PHP, we can focus our efforts on features that are possible in PHP.

ASp and ASP.Net

My Version of Dreamweaver CS4 supports ASP and ASP.Net

No announcements have been made about DW CS5 contents so unless you are talking with knowledge subject to an NDA then who knows what DW CS5 will and won't have

My understanding is that DWCS5 will either have little or no support for ASP (any flavor).

The new areas of Dreamweaver will be enhanced objects and tools for using the big frameworks out there (which are typiclally PHP based) like Drupal, Joomla, and some other more universal systems. There have been a couple of video released by Adobe from some of their conventions that unveiled some of the new features in DWCS5 but nothing concrete has been announced yet.

My guess is that Dreamweaver will focus on PHP Frameworks because of a recent study showed that's what the majority of DW users wanted and Adobe's own ColdFusion.

These are pre CS4 release and they are just wrong. I have made over 25 ASP sites with DW CS4 and a couple of learning sites in ASP.Net which I have also made using Expression Web 2.

I have recently received my copy of Expression Web 3 and won't be rushing to make that my main development system.

Guess I'm gonna have to make the jump to PHP but it will be a wrench to give up all those neat ASP extensions that I currently use.

Interestingly DMX Zone, Community MX and others remain committed to ASP with their extensions.

regards

So this quote:

  I never considered was that it simply would not work because Adobe never bothered to build ASP.NET 2.0 functionality into Dreamweaver. Not only that -- I completely missed the fact that in late August 2007 Adobe announced that it would be dropping ASP.NET functionality completely.  


Is wrong?

  Well on the latest release of CS4 I guess Adobe decided that it was better to not provide any support for .NET guys like myself than to provide support for older ASP.NET 1.1 components. I recently updated to CS4 only to discover this after the fact.  
  One of the biggest complaints developers had with CS3 was that it did not add support for .NET 2.0 controls, and just had the standard .NET 1.1 controls in your ASP.NET toolbar. Well in CS4 there is not ASP.NET toolbar. What is weird is that if you goto File New. It still gives you the option to create an ASP.NET file. You would think that if you were going to ditch the toolbar you would remove support for the files too  



Has this changed since Dec 20, 2008? I don't use ASP so I just go by those that do and I haven't heard differently. Does your CS4 have full support for .net 2.0? Do you have a link where Adobe reversed their position on their previous statement? Or are you talking about "support" as in DW 2004mx "supported" CSS in that it allowed you to use it?

There is probably a bit of misunderstanding in there... DWCS4 still allowed users to create ASP pages of any flavor... but Adobe did drop the toolbar as office guy stated - so they don't offer support or convenience controls for ASP the way they do for either PHP or ColdFusion. But creating a page of any type in Dreamweaver is not dissimilar to just opening your favorite text editor and creating the page from scratch - so there would be no reason for Dreamweaver to prohibit users from making whatever pages they want... Adobe just has decided that they are no longer going to offer/develop the toolset.
