A Guide to Evaluating the Microsoft .NET Framework: The .NET Framework is an integral Microsoft Windows® component that supports building and running the next generation of software applications and XML Web services.

  • The Microsoft .NET Framework is an integral Windows component for building and running the next generation of applications and XML Web services. It provides a highly productive, standards-based, enterprise-ready, multilanguage environment that simplifies application development, enables developers to leverage their existing skill set, facilitates integration with existing software, and eases the challenges of deploying and operating Internet-scale applications. The .NET Framework consists of two main parts: the common language runtime (CLR) and a unified, hierarchical class library that includes a revolutionary advance to Active Server Pages (ASP.NET), an environment for building smart client applications (Windows Forms), and a loosely coupled data access subsystem (ADO.NET).
