Macromedia Flash is a vector based format which allows quick loading graphics and animations. ASP allows dynamic web pages to be created on the fly.

You can have information sent from a database into the Flash interface. To personalize flash sites and make the experience interactive. The possibilities are endless.
How Does Dynamic Flash Work?
The Flash operates as the "front end", meaning it is what the user sees and interacts with. It contains the graphics and ActionScript coding. The database acts as the "backend" and holds all of the information that is served to Flash. ASP is the "middleware" and transfers the information from the database to flash. ASP performs most of the coding functions.
