A web development platform that assists you with the services required for building robust web applications and comprehensive software infrastructure. That’s the simplest definition of ASP.NET we can come up with. ASP.NET can be used for building applications for both PC and mobile devices. To set a browser-to-server bilateral communication it uses the HTTP commands and policies.
The ASP.NET are compiled codes which are written in reusable and extensible components that are present in .NET framework. The languages in which the ASP.NET application can be written are C++. Visual Basic .Net, JScript, J#. this platform is used to produce data driven and interactive web application. The ASP.NET comprises of a huge number of controls like text boxes, labels and buttons for assembling, manipulating and configuring codes to construct HTML pages.
- Code behind mode:
Here the separation of design and code comes into the picture and it makes the whole model to easily maintain ASP.NET application. The common type of an ASP.NET file is aspx. The another part is the file called aspx.cs that denotes the code part of the page. The visual studio creates separate files one for design and the other for the code.
- State management:
Here you also get the facility to control state management. The HTTP is a stateless protocol. It can be understood with a simple example of shopping cart. When a customer puts some products in the cart then the application remembers the products but HTTP doesn’t store the information and will not remember it. Additional coding is needed to make the application remember the information but ASP.NET do state management for you so it remembers the cart items.
Caching can be implemented by ASP.NET which improves the performance of the application. Caching helps in storing the requested pages by user at a temporary place and the pages can be retrieved faster and responses can be improved for the users.
The ASP.NET Core 2.0 is the newest version that has a lot of tool enhancements. It assists the developers with all the tools and framework features so as to build a rich web application. Here are some of the points why you should be excited about this new version.
- Supported by .NET Core 2.0 and .NET Standard 2.0.
- Compatible backward in running on .NET Framework 4.6.1.
- It has a streamlined support for client side Java Script SPA Framework.
- It is also furnished with project templates.
- It has CLI or visual tooling.
The developers have a lot of rich tools to choose from. Here are the things you can choose:
- Visual studio 2017(15.3+)
