The “Account” folder contains logon and security files
The “App_Data” folder contains databases and data files
The “Images” folder contains images

Virtual and Physical Names
From the example above:
The virtual name of a web picture might be “Images/pic31.jpg”.

9. Differentiate globalization and localization.
“Globalization is the process of designing and developing a software product that functions in multiple cultures/locales.”

“Localization is the process of adapting a globalized application, which you have already processed for localizability, to a particular culture/locale.”

10. What is ViewState?
View state is the method that the ASP.NET page framework uses to preserve page and control values between round trips. When the HTML markup for the page is rendered, the current state of the page and values that must be retained during postback are serialized into base64-encoded strings.
11. name of method tha used to force all the validation controls to run?
Page.Validate() method

12. difference between Response.Write() and Response.Output.Write() methods?
Response.write() don’t give formatted output. The latter one allows you to write formatted output.

Response.write – it writes the text stream Response.output.write – it writes the HTTP Output Stream.

13. What is a Cookie?
A cookie is often used to identify a user. A cookie is a small file that the server embeds on the user’s computer. Each time the same computer requests a page with a browser, it will send the cookie too. With ASP, you can both create and retrieve cookie values.

14. How to Create a Cookie?
The “Response.Cookies” command is used to create cookies.

Note: The Response.Cookies command must appear BEFORE the <html> tag.

In the example below, we will create a cookie named “fname” and assign the value “ABC” to it:
Response.Cookies(“fname”).Expires=#Jan 10,2015#

15. How to Retrieve a Cookie Value?
The “Request.Cookies” command is used to retrieve a cookie value.

response.write(“Firstname=” & firstname)
