|ASP (ScriptGen) - COM MAP
COM map allows you to specify your own (may be shorter) aliases for
the COM objects used in your application. The map affects
Server.CreateObject and the <OBJECT RUNAT=SERVER> tags.
option is very important for autorun applications. In pure
autorun scenarios some COM objects are used without installing them,
so the system is able to create them only by ClassID. Creating
aliases for them (most often the same as their ProgID-s) will simplify the
application development. In autorun case the non-registered objects
must be listed also in the alpframe.cfg file (see ALPFrame
documentation for details).
Presets for the ALP run-time library
and optional components are available. It is recommended to use one of
them when using components from the ALP run-time library.
aliasing can be used for other purposes as appropriate. You can define
aliases for any COM object used in the ASP and global.asa pages no matter if the
application will be distributed using typical installation or will be
some kind of autorun without installation. For example you can specify
short aliases for the frequently used objects.
