I think he meant 'application()' - application-scope variables, like
session-scope variables.

The answer is 'no', but you can 'roll your own' functionality pretty 
easily if you need to.  Application variable were/are a big pain in the 
ASP world, ime, because people abuse them.  There's rarely MUCH data
you need to pass around globally and modify like that that wouldn't be 
better off in a database.

not directly, but an ASP script on the same domain should be able to 
read the cookie storing the session ID, then pull the info out from a 
database (if you're using a db backed to store the session info).

Short answer is no - probably for the questioner's needs, but it's 
possible it can be done in some unique situations.
