There are three main ways to create dynamic content on your Web server: through Active Server Pages (ASP) pages, Component Object Model (COM) components, and Internet Server Application Programming Interface (ISAPI) filters and extensions. There are two main ways to manage the content and configuration settings on your Web server: through IIS Manager graphical user interface (GUI), or programmatically using scripts and COM components.
In this section of the documentation are descriptions of IIS code samples for ASP pages, COM components, ISAPI filters and extensions, and programmatic administration scripts. IIS samples are included in the IIS Software Developer Kit (SDK). You can download the IIS SDK from Platform SDK Update. You can view the SDK at MSDN Online. In the table of contents at MSDN Online, click Web Development, Server Technologies, Internet Information Services (IIS), SDK Documentation, Internet Information Services, Samples.
The samples are organized into the following sections:
|Group||Description||Coding Languages||Related Documentation|
|ASP Code Samples||Pointers to documentation that contain ASP code examples or examples of code that can be used from an ASP page.||Mostly written in VBScript with some JScript||Web Application Guide and|
|COM Component Code Samples||Samples of COM components that can be called from ASP pages||Mostly written in Visual Basic (VB) with some in Visual C++||Building COM Components for ASP,|
|ISAPI Extension Code Samples||Samples of source code that compile into ISAPI extensions that use COM, keep-alive connections, server variables, redirection, forms, CGI, chunked transfer encoding, and synchronous I/O||Written in Visual C++||Developing ISAPI Extensions and Filters,
Extension Reference, and
|Filter Code Samples||Samples of source code that compile into ISAPI filters that perform tasks such as uppercase conversion, cookie impersonation, and authentication.||Written in Visual C++||Developing ISAPI Extensions and Filters,
Filter Reference, and
|Samples for Programmatic Administration||Samples illustrating how to manage your Web server using script files and compiled applications||Mostly written VBScript with some JScript and Visual C++ using WMI, ADSI and ABO||Programmatic Administration Guide,|
