[annotator-dev] Questions on Annotator Store

Hi annotator-dev team,
I am using Microsoft IIS which hosts ASP files (for rendering content to the
end user) and Microsoft SQL Server 2005 database as my back-end. Currently,
I am using "annotateit.org" to store annotations. My goal is to use my MSSQL
Server 2005 as my back-end.

I read the Storage Wiki. I also read the Wiki on Store-plugin. Plus, I have
also downloaded the code from the "annotator-store". But, I am completely
lost at what to do.

1) Currently, I am using the annotateit.org as the back-end. So, I think I
will have to first change the "prefix" in the Store plugin:

.annotator('addPlugin', 'Store', {
prefix: 'http://annotateit.org/api'

But, what should it point to? Should it point to an ASP file? And if so,
then what should the ASP file be doing?

2) I can write ASP/VBScript code that can perform
insertion/modification/deletion of data in MSSQL Server 2005. But, how
should I send data to the ASP files?

3) Will I need python to build my code?

I don't know how should I interpret the code that I have downloaded from
annotator-store. Should I be modifying the files that I have downloaded or
should I be writing new ones?

I would appreciate if you can provide me with step-by-step instructions on
how to implement the store.
