On Application pages, you can see some reasons for and
against their use. As for the basic comparison of these pages or their use, I

your case, certainly about the underlying parts that drive these pages. Both
types of pages have their purposes. I would simply be cautious in determining
what pages are best used as Site pages and what are best used as Application
pages. We will cover some example information next.
