Hey, is it possible to protect ASP code in some way? Can it be compiled, or
otherwise protect the source somehow?

Thanks,

-Bill.

Wrap it into a DLL, but if you're going to that effort you may as well
go to a .NET app. Otherwise, not really.

Thanks for the reply, Jeff.

Are you saying that a .NET web app can be compiled or protected? How?

Bill.

an aspx page, only exposes the HTML pages (aspx) and teh compiled code (not
simply readable by using notepad), is inside a subfolder inside a single DLL
(assembly).

If you want to 'protect' your stuff, you could use a licensing approach.
Remember, that if somebody really wants to decode your code, or hack it,
they -will- succeed. However, you are the author of intellectual property
and you are advancing features, the 'hacked version' won't be the blessed
version. In short, trust your customers a little more.

Yes - use code behind pages for any .NET server code. When you compile the
app, all you need then are the aspx pages and the dll in the bin folder.
