Why use Dot Net Framework?
It is known that the Dot NET Framework is a programming model which supports building and running of software applications for several platforms such as Windows, Windows Server, Windows Phone, Microsoft Azure, as well as XML.
The types of applications that can be created using Dot Net are:
Desktop applications: Windows GUI applications, Accounting applications, Product/inventory applications, Warehousing applications, Applications for value chain/supply management, and Windows services applications.
Web Applications: Websites, XML Web services and Applications requiring integration with partners through the Internet.
Applications on Embedded Systems: Mobile Applications/Android Applications/iOS Applications.
Others: Console based applications, Service-oriented applications using Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) and Workflow-enabled applications using Windows Workflow Foundation (WF).
Dot Net is developed by Microsoft and runs on Microsoft Windows. The core advantages of Dot Net are its Framework Class Library and Common Language Runtime which provides language interoperability across several programming languages. In this blog, we discuss the reasons of why Dot Net is the most preferred framework to develop software applications for both web and mobile platforms.
Lesser Coding: Dot Net works on object-oriented programming and it eliminates unnecessary codes. This involves less coding for the developers. .NET consists of re-useable code and many re-useable components. As a result, it takes lesser time and consequently lower costs to develop applications.
Deployment: The deployment process becomes easier with features such as no-impact applications, private components, controlled code sharing, side-by-side versioning, and partially trusted code. Moreover, Dot Net’s code execution environment supports safe code execution for reduced conflicts in software deployment and versioning. It also reduces performance problems of scripted or interpreted environments.
Reliability: Being a Microsoft product, Dot Net is very stable and reliable. Its performance on Microsoft® Windows Server™ 2003 and Windows 2000 Server is also an advantage. Hence, .NET has been used to develop thousands of applications since its release in 2002.
Security: This is one of the main features of the Dot Net framework. Its managed code and CLR offer safeguard features that include role based security and code access security. Development of web applications using Dot Net also has the benefits of Windows confirmation and configuration.
Single Framework for Different Platforms and Languages:
. NET allows developers to develop desktop applications, a browser-based application, a mobile browser, and an application running on PDA. It is a language-independent framework and development can take place in different compliant languages such as C#, managed C++, VB.NET, Visual COBOL, IronPython, and IronRuby.
Use for Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA):
.NET is often used for Web Services, which are solutions for executing SOA strategies. In this way, applications that are designed using different programming languages or platforms can communicate and transmit data utilizing standard Internet protocols.
Integration with Legacy Systems:
.Net can process all types of XML documents and write any format of file with ease. Thus it provides multiple routes for integration.
