Microsoft .NET is a software framework and development platform that is used mainly in Microsoft Windows. One of its main objectives is to integrate the different languages used for programing and other services. Primarily, .NET is a framework that consists of numerous components and tools that can be used to design, develop and deploy custom software applications. It is a simplified programming model which is also consistent which allows it to easily build applications that are quite robust.
There are many components of the Microsoft .Net framework including Web Forms, Console Applications, Windows Forms, Common Language Runtime (CLR) and the .Net Framework Base Classes, and more. Several of these components pertain to the layers in which applications are presented. Web Forms are used to develop web-based applications and Windows Forms can be used to build desktop or Windows based solutions. Console applications on the other hand, are based on characters, the execution of which is made from the line of command. The Common Language Runtime forms a significant component of the .Net framework and provides the user an array of functionalities. All languages are handled exceptionally, provided security, and are provided with support. Above all, it provides debugging functions to the language. This means that it is possible to ensure interoperability between the coding processes. The .Net Framework Base Classes is a library that functions with any language in the .Net Application. Languages like Visual Basic, .NET and C# are all operable in this application. Various tasks in programming can be managed by the .Net Framework Base Classes. Some of the tasks include data collection, file access, connectivity to the database, and string management. One of the most distinctive features of the .Net framework Base Classes is that it is extremely consistent and can be used across many languages. It is possible to use the same group of classes to perform tasks which are specific to one language and also to any other language with different specifications.
There are many advantages in the use of the Microsoft .Net application and some of them include:
• Enhanced application design tools
• Promotes significant code reuse
• Enhanced Code specialization
• Multi-language development within an application
• Improved management of resources
• Robust security
• Application deployment facilities
• Integrated testing
• Overall administration is made simpler and hassle free
One of the best factors about the Microsoft.Net is that it is extremely user-friendly and simple.
