While there are many good online articles on VBScript error handling, there are far too few JScript error-handling articles. Part of the reason, of course, is error handling wasn’t available in JScript until Version 5.0. Furthermore, there are not many online articles discussing how to use the ASPError object for exception handling, also due, no doubt, to its relative newness. Keeping that in mind, here are some selected readings on the various exception-handling approaches discussed throughout this chapter.
For a good read on using VBScript error-handling techniques to present understandable error messages to your visitors, check out “Error Handling in ASP,” at http://www.4guysfromrolla.com/webtech/060399-1.shtml.
A rather detailed discussion of JScript’s error handling can be seen on Microsoft’s site at http://msdn.microsoft.com/workshop/languages/jscript/handling.asp.
On Microsoft’s site, there is a rather lengthy article on new ASP 3.0 features. Unfortunately, only a short part of the article discusses using the ASPError object for exception handling. The article, “Internet Information Services 5.0,” can be found at http://www.microsoft.com/mind/0499/iis5/iis5.htm.
The most thorough article on the ASPError object I could find was at http://www.asptoday.com/articles/19990308.htm, in a piece entitled “Error Handling in IIS 5.0.”
