Significance of Microsoft Dotnet Programming:
.Net Development Platform is also spelled as DotNet, was unveiled by Microsoft with target to ease desktop as well as web software development. .Net Framework, Visual Studio IDE and some other server technologies form overall .Net Development Platform. Microsoft has revolutionized web software development with this extremely popular offering.
.Net Framework applications are built on the services of the common language runtime (CLR) and consume functionality of the .Net Framework class library. Main components of the .Net Framework are the CLR and the .Net Framework class library, which include ASP.Net, Windows Forms, ADO.Net for data access and Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF). .Net Framework provides managed execution environment, simplified development and deployment. .Net framework eases software development by supporting various programming languages like vb.net, C#.net and many more.
.NET Framework breaks the limitation of one technology, allowing software architects, business analysts and developers to utilize the most practical and engaging methods throughout the application development process and create integrated solutions with very high levels of efficiency.
.Net provides great support for developing Desktop Applications also called WinForms. Due to rich functionality library of .Net, developing a desktop application is easier than ever before. Supporting painting using GDI+ or Remoting or Maths related functionality, .Net has great code base to ease .Net development for desktop applications. Using Visual Studio and Tools for Ms Office, now its possible to develop Ms Outlook Add Ins in DotNet.
ASP.Net development is less time consuming compared to some other technologies due to lots and lots of functionality is inbuilt in the .Net framework. Market has very good support for ASP.Net web hosting. Another aspect is easy availability of ASP.Net developers. Due to Microsoft’s proactive efforts in training .Net professionals, every year thousands of new quality ASP.Net developers are added to pool.
ASP.Net XML Web Services allows you to provide functionality on web without rendering user interface. Suppose you need to do currency conversion or you may want to know weather in particular area, you can consume a .Net web service for same. Your web application will call function of web service with appropriate parameters, server hosting web service will process function and deliver result to calling application.
Highlighting some of the benefits of ASP.NET, this programming framework provides:
- A platform to perform common tasks such as simple form submission, client authentication to deployment and site configuration.
- Power and flexibility to choose the language that best applies to your application or partition your application across many languages.
- A well-factored architecture that allows developers to “plug-in” their code at the appropriate level.
