    Functionally they are very similar.  There is one big difference however, an HttpHandler contains a single ProcessRequest event and an HttpModule intercepts all application requests and can see all of the HttpApplication events(AuthenticateRequest, BeginRequest, EndRequest, etc).

    is it possible to to use these events in an http Handler? like beginRequest etc without using the HTTPApplication object?

    the reason why i dont use the http module is because i want to filter some extension like *.jpg. I cant achieve this in HTTP module (or can i?)
