ASP.NET Web Application
Development is a great technology for building large and small
web application. The best part of ASP.NET is that you can enhance
and customize any of the predefined controls according to your requirements.
ASP.NET is a collection of different other technologies for building your ASP.NET
Web Application and Web Services. ASP.NET code will be execute on
the Windows web server and generate HTML, WML and XML
markup languages for the web browsers and handheld devices. With
ASP.NET it's easy to build dynamic websites, XML based web
services and custom web applications. ASP.NET is
based on Common Language Runtime (CLR). It's easy for Web
Developers to write their code in any of the technologies such as
ASP.NET, Visual Basic .net, Jscript .net which is supported by
.NET Framework. It also support Python and Perl open source
languages too. In ASP.NET all your server side code is compiled in
a .DLL (Dynamic Link Library) file and will be uploaded to the
Advantages of using ASP.NET for your Web Application
.DLL are precompiled and whenever a client request asp.net pages then it'll
display faster on client browsers because .DLL are precompiled and hence there
is no compilation time for a web page request.
Run time error handling is a good feature for redirecting users to any other
specified page according the errors.
User defined controls such as template and menu control
Class libraries and set of controls reduces the building of asp.net
ASP.NET has multi-language capabilities allow you to code your web pages in
VB.NET, C#, J# etc.
ASP.NET is able to cache the complete page or just parts of the web page for
the performance enhancement.
ASP.NET Session state can be saved in a dedicated MS-SQL Server database
.NET Framework features:
- In .NET Framework there are several COM libraries, .NET Framework gives the
capability for interoperability between custom codes and existing COM
Base Class Library
- .NET Frame Work Class (FCL) Library or Base Class Library (BCL) is globally
available library of types for all languages in .NET Framework.
-.NET Framework defines all datatypes & constructs as supported by Common
Language Runtime (CLR) and how they manage interaction with each other
datatypes & constructs. This management is know as Common Type System
(CTS). Multiple Programming Languages is supported by .NET Framework.
Common Runtime Engine
- There are many coding languages supported by .NET Framework, compiled into an
intermediate language commonly known as Common Intermediate Language (CIL).
Microsoft's implementation of Common Intermediate Language is known as
Microsoft Intermediate Language (MSIL). This MSIL language is compiled as
just-in-time compilation (JIT) into native programming code. These process
combination concepts known as Common Language Infrastructure (CLI)
specification. Implementation of CLI is universally known as the Common
Language Runtime (CLR).
Security - .NET Framework allows different trust levels (Form
Authentication, Windows Authentication & Passport Authentication) for the
applications. It's always safe that you should customize your web server for
medium trust processing.
