  • I think the choice of technology says a lot about the company - if they are using ASP then they care more about following the crowd and ticking boxes than actually thinking.

    I have worked with ASP for over a year and can safely say that server-side validation is the exception rather than the norm.

    Worse still even if you do server-side validation, you can't control what happens when you call COM objects that are required for even basic tasks like email, file uploads and browser detection.

    It is possible to write a good web application in ASP but it takes a great deal more work than doing so in Java, Python, Perl, coldfusion or PHP.
