.Net Development

.Net was basically introduced by Microsoft to take catch the market from SUN Java. Microsoft only had VC++ and VB to compete with Java few years back, but Java was catching the market very fast. Internet/Web and Java related tools were becoming the best choice for application development. Even though .Net has borrowed most of its ideas from SUN J2EE, it has really outperformed their competitors.

Microsoft's VC++ is supposed to be a powerful tool. But it is too complex, as developers need to know about the datatypes, and learn many libraries including Windows SDK, MFC, ATL, COM etc. There were many datatype compatibility issues while exchanging data between different layers. In comparison Visual Basic was too easy, and many serious programmers hated it just for that reason. Even though Visual basic was very easy to use, it was not very flexible to develop serious applications. SUN's Java became a very good choice for these reasons. It had the flexibility and power of C++ and at the same time easy enough to catch the attention of VB programmers.

Microsoft introduced the .Net considering all these factors and eliminating unwanted complexities. .Net is a pure object oriented programming model which makes development easier. It ensures safe execution of the code by performing required runtime validation. Like, it is never possible to access an element of an array outside the boundary, similarly, it is not possible to a program to while into another programs areas etc.

Two main components of .Net framework are:-

  1. Common language runtime
  2. Net class library

Some important features are:-

  1. Assembler - An assembly is either a .DLL or .EXE that forms a part of an application.
  2. Common type system - It specifies the ruler relates to date types that language must follow.
  3. Cross language interoperability - .Net provides support for language interoperability. It doesn’t means every program written is a language can be used by another language but is enables a program to be used with other languages.

Why .Net should be preferred?
.Net platform helps developers and designers to get benefits of its creative and dynamic characteristics in the layer of already available coding, re-use of code and the facility to use different programming languages.

Advantages of .Net

  1. It significantly decreases the quantity of code necessary in large was application which are developed in .Net framework.
  2. Web application developed in is secure as windows configuration and confirmation can be attained for every application.
  3. It provides server control and clue prints with capability of drag and drop and involuntary operation
  4. development provides WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get).
