Declaring Objects with the <OBJECT> Tag for ASP files

Declaring Objects with the <OBJECT> Tag for ASP files

For objects that may or may not be used in an application, it’s often most efficient to declare the objects without instantiating them until the need to use them arises (until they are referenced). To declare an object without actually creating it, use the tag on the page instead of Server.CreateObject().

Another advantage to bear in mind is that the tag uses CLASSIDs, which are unique and tend to eliminate name collisions. The PROGIDs used by Server.Create.Object() do not force unique names, creating the possibility of name collisions. Also, the tag is supported in Global.asa and can be used to define scope using SCOPE or SESSION as values.
