ASP.NET is stand for Active Server Pages and .NET is a framework developed by Microsoft. In Today’s cut-throat business competitive environment, ASP.NET Development plays a vital role in software development. Due to its robustness many companies use ASP.NET to develop their web application. It gives robust web base solutions. ASP.NET programming is used to create dynamic web pages. You can use ASP.NET programming to create small website to large application development. ASP.NET Development makes use of .NET Framework, which includes a huge library of classes that contains pre-defined functions for average common programming problems. The core of .NET Framework contains the (CLR) Common Language Runtime , which provides the runtime environment to execute the programs developed for the .NET framework.
ASP.NET is not limited to script languages, it allows you to make use of .NET languages like C#, J#, VB, etc. It allows use of Visual Studio, the development tool given by Microsoft. It is purely a server side technology built on common language runtime that can be used on any Windows server to host powerful ASP.NET web sites and technologies.
ASP.NET is a compressed coding means it saves time in coding. You need not to repeat coding every time. Therefore it reduces the amount of codes required to build a large application. Your application are safe and secure with built in Window authentication and pre-application configuration. It provides better performance by taking advantage of early binding, just-in-time compilation, native optimization, and caching services right out of the box.
Visual Studio provides WYSIWYG editing, drag-and-drop server controls, and automatic deployment for better performance. ASP.NET provides simplicity as it makes easy to perform common tasks, from simple form submission and client authentication to deployment and site configuration. ASP.NET pages are easy to maintain and write because source code and HTML are together. Also the source code is executed on the server. This provides a lot of power and flexibility to the web pages.
All the processes are closely monitored and managed by the ASP.NET runtime, therefore if any process is dead, a new process can be created in its place, which helps keep your application constantly available to handle requests. It is purely server-side technology so, ASP.NET code executes on the server before it is sent to the browser. It allows you to choose the language that best applies to your application or partition your application across many languages therefore it is language independent.
The configuration information is built-in there is no need to register components. The Web server continuously monitors the pages, components and applications running on it. If it notices any memory leaks, infinite loops, other illegal activities, it immediately destroys those activities and restarts itself.
