Microsoft .NET

The requirements of programming and technology were constantly evolving and there was a need for a development platform that was unrestricting and accessible. In a rather successful attempt to address the problems faced by developers to overcome installation, integration, and legacy issues, Microsoft created its .NET (pronounced dot-net) platform.

The .NET Framework is a common environment for building, deploying, and running Web Services and Web Applications. It is a software framework for Microsoft Windows operating systems that includes a large library and supports several programming languages which allows language interoperability. This .Net library is available to all the programming languages that .NET supports.

The .NET technology provides a new approach to software development. This is the first development platform designed from the ground up with the Internet in mind.

Features of .Net

Microsoft .Net offers a number of features that will make it your first choice:

  • Interoperability: The .Net framework provides means to access functionality that is implemented in programs that execute outside the .NET environment.
  • Language Independence: The .Net framework supports the exchange of types and object instances between libraries and applications written using any conforming .NET language. It does so through the Common Type System (CTS) that defines all possible data types and programming constructs.
  • Common Language Runtime Engine: All .NET programs execute under the supervision of the Common Runtime Language (CLR), guaranteeing certain effective memory management, security, and exception handling.
  • Security: The .Net framework provides a common security platform for all applications. It protects the applications from the exploitations by malicious software programs.
  • Simplified Deployment: The design features and tools offered by the .Net framework help in managing the installation of computer software to ensure that it does not interfere with previously installed software, and that it conforms to security requirements.
  • Base Class Library: The .Net framework offers a Base Class Library (BCL) as part of Framework Class Library (FCL) which includes features such as file reading, graphic rendering, and database interaction and so on.
  • Portability: Any program written using the .Net framework can run on any type of system without any changes. The .Net framework allows for cross-platform implementations for other operating systems.

Advantages of .Net

The .NET Framework is a Microsoft Windows component that is available to Windows users through various distribution channels. .Net provides a number of benefits to the developers.

  • The .Net framework makes it easy to install any commercial applications from Microsoft and other third-party companies.
  • The .Net framework automatically updates itself by the Microsoft Update service.
  • The .Net framework allows you to apply common skills across a variety of devices, application types, and programming tasks
  • The .Net framework easily integrates with other tools and technologies to build the right solution with less work
  • The .Net development frameworks and technologies are reusable and customizable for larger programming tasks.
  • The .Net framework ensures easier web settings, web configurations, and deployment of applications.
