Need of .ashx file in asp.net RRS feed

  • Question

  • My requirement is simple. I just need to give a formatted output xml using Response.Write. I am using an .aspx page for it.

    But i read in an article that using an .ashx file would be more efficient for this purpose as it avoids unnecessary page load functionalities. I am not much clear about this.

    Please give me some basic details on the purpose of .ashx file in asp.net.

    A sample code for my requirement will be more welcome :)
