Hi- We have application written in ASP (.asp) and I am trying get this application tested in IIS7. I enabled ASP while adding the Web server role to windows longhorn server . I did not add ASP.NET feature to IIS
The application (asp pages) works fine in both integrated mode and classic mode types of applications pool without any issues. But I am wondering running my ASP applications integrated pipeline mode does really make any difference in the performance or in
other words does running in .asp pages in integrated pipeline mode help with the performance. I don't think so since I would assume that .asp pages would ASPClassic ISAPI modules in both the case. Can you verify this? Or any other materials on this topic would

The operation of ASP code is the same in both Integrated and Classic modes (like you said, it only affects how ASP.NET applications operate in the application pool).
However, you can add functionality to your ASP application by placing it in Integrated mode, and using one or more ASP.NET modules to provide services to your app. For example, you can protect your ASP app with ASP.NET's Forms authentication / Membership /
Login controls - see this article:
http://www.iis.net/articles/view.aspx/IIS7/Extending-IIS7/Getting-Started/How-to-Take-Advantage-of-the-IIS7-Integrated-Pipel. This can be a way to add value to your application without having to write any code (or do things in ASP that are a lot easier
in ASP.NET), or change your existing application over to ASP.NET.
