Welcome to EZtek’s Blog!

In this article, we’ll cover the major features of the .NET framework as well as its architecture components and benefits. Read this article to learn how .NET solves the biggest problems of software development. On this channel, we share our best practices and the hottest tech trends, so follow us not to miss them!

What is the .NET Framework?

The.NET framework is an open source Microsoft development framework that offers a wide range of tools for building web and mobile apps. There are two.NET implementations .NET Core and the.NET framework. In this article, we will be focusing on the latter.

.NET is an intermediate bytecode language that requires a runtime interpreter to implement, each implementation of.NET consists of the following major components:

  • Common language runtime (CLR) – a platform that allows libraries and programming languages to work together.
  • Class library
  • Common language specification
  • Additional frameworks and development tools.

Advantages of using the .NET framework

  • Shared code libraries
  • No “writing from scratch”
  • Code access security
  • Built-in ui controls
  • Great caching system
  • Easy deployment and maintenance.

So, Why is the .NET framework considered one of the top development frameworks? The biggest problem with software development is complexity and net solves it.

Objectives of .NET framework

Easy Development

Features like language interoperability and extended class library allow programmers to quickly and easily produce software.

The four “ities”

The four “ities” are:

  • Reliability
  • Compatibility
  • Scalability
  • Security.

The .NET framework is a highly scalable and reliable platform, as it secures its applications by assigning access rights to specific users.
The.NET framework has also maximized its backward compatibility.

High Performance

Thanks to .NET just in time compiler which performs a speedy and smooth code execution, the machine code can be obtained in a more efficient way.

The.NET Framework Architecture

#1 Common Language Runtime – CLR

This component handles running apps and manages other system services such as memory, garbage collection, security or exception handling.

#2 Class Library

It includes subsets of reusable code that can be called to perform a specific task, it is the foundation on which.NET framework apps, components and controls are built.

#3 App Models

The.NET framework provides a variety of tools to develop certain types of apps. Examples of such tools are Winforms, ASP.NET and ADO.NET.

  • Winforms is used for designing forms based applications which would run on windows desktop.
  • ASP.NET is used for designing and developing modern web apps.
  • ADO.NET is used to develop and control web apps that provide consistent access to databases.Such as XML or Microsoft SQL server and can be run on Linux and Mac.
