||ActiveX Data Objects - most used DB API by the script programmers.
Implemented in several components and running through OLEDB it gives all the required
||Technology allowing Win32 based applications to run/use scripts in
universal manner without knowledge of the script languages syntax. Realized as COM
components supported standard interfaces.
||Active Server Pages - the most popular Active Scripting based Microsoft's
technology for WEB applications
||Component Content Generation Architecture
||Content generator(s). Components that implement the native CCGA and
respectively ALP applications such as ScriptGen, GateCGI and so on.
||Common Gateway Interface - standard supported by WEB servers. Allows WEB
server to run external executables (called CGI applications) to generate the response
content sent to the client side. Defines how the WEB server communicates with the process
- how the client request is passed to the CGI application and how the output/response is
returned to the WEB server.
||In this documentation stands by the variables available for the
applications executed by the OS.
||C++ component library used for CCGA and ALP realization
||Microsoft Jet Engine - Database engine provided with all desktop versions
of Microsoft Windows operating system. It supports .mdb (Microsoft Access) databases in
native way. MS Access office application uses it (through DAO)
||Open Data Base Connectivity. Standard API that provides universal access
to different database engines. In this documentation Win32 implementation is always
||newObjects ODBC Simple Components
||Uniform Resource Locator - string/syntax used to point resources over the
||Refers to the ALP Run-time library which is also
separately available under the name newObject ActiveX Pack1
||Most often refers to the core of the AXPack1
||Freeware database available as free source code on www.sqlite.org.
The SQLite COM database implementation is based on this code and
extends it with some COM related features.
||Virtual site or Virtual ALP site (or simply site
where no mistake can be made) refers to the ALP feature - Virtual
ALP site. This is a directory and all of its subdirectories that
act as like a separate virtual WEB site.
||When referred as ALP configuration or functionality
feature means the ASP pages and other content that shares the same
application settings (e.g. file type to ALP module map, settings
for the module, timeouts, MIME map and so on). This is a directory
and its sub-directories marked by the existence of an
alp.application file in the starting directory or if that file is
missing the alp.site (which defines Virtual ALP site) implicitly
assumes ALP Application.
