ASP Tool Hides Code

Infomentum Monday released ASPLightning, a packaging and deployment tool designed to protect the intellectual property of Web applications based on Microsoft's Active Server Pages technology.

ASPLightning protects ASP source code and is said to also improve performance. While ASP applications are typically delivered as source code and executed through the VBSCRIPT interpreter, ASPLightning applications run as natively compiled code in the form of a Visual Basic 6.0 Active Server Component DLL. This allows ASP developers to benefit from Microsoft's VB compiler technology without having to re-architect their applications for a new programming model.

ASPLightning is priced at $299 per developer. Applications packaged with ASPLightning can be distributed royalty-free. More information is available at the ASPLightning site.
