Introduction

With .NET, Microsoft is also espousing a vision, this time about how the Internet can make businesses more efficient and deliver services to consumers. The present enterprise setup’s need to have n-tier architecture with diverse platforms and object models communicating with each other. The present applications are to be created such that those applications have to run in any platform (like Windows, Linux, Mac, Unix etc.) and which consist of components written in many programming languages and object models.

The framework’s Base Class Library provides a large range of features including user interface, data and data access, database connectivity, cryptography, web application development, numeric algorithms, and network communications. The class library is used by programmers, who combine it with their own code to produce applications. Many language vendors have tried to upgrade their languages, but there is a frontier to which they have been victorious since they have to maintain backward competence and face many additional problems too. To resolve the problem of the existing programmers Microsoft has come with a very promising solution “The .NET Platform”.

.NET provides a number of benefits that will make developers further productive, trim down the number of bugs, alacrity application development, and simplify deployment. IT managers are understandably cautious, since .NET is a new technology that requires a moderately sharp learning curve.
