In ISAPI, the responses to that are handled by an extension DLL, which has to be mapped in using a script mapping. In IIS 7, a module just sees every request and it detects when it has to take over based on the URL matching what it's told to handle, which is how Apache works also. The side effect is no script mapping and much less hassle configuring it inside IIS.
