Dot Net Structure
Explain the structure of Dot Net platform with proper diagram.
The .NET platform is a set of technologies. Microsoft .NET platform simplify software development (Windows or WEB) by building applications of XML Web services.
The.NET platform consists of the following core technologies:
• The .NET Framework
• The .NET Enterprise Servers
• Building block services
• Visual Studio .NET
A programming model (.NET Framework) that enables developers to build Extensible Markup Language (XML) Web services and applications.
A set of .NET Enterprise Servers, including Windows 2000, Microsoft SQL Server., and Microsoft BizTalk® Server, that integrate, run, operate, and manage XML Web services and applications.
The .NET Framework must run on an operating system. Currently, the .NET Framework is built to run on the Microsoft Win32® operating systems, such as' Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows 98. When .NET Framework running on Windows 2000 then application services (such as Component Services, Message Queuing, Internet Information Services (IIS), and Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) ) are available to the developers. The .NET Framework exposes application services through classes in the .NET Framework class library.
There are some client software such as Windows XP and Windows CE, which helps developers deliver a comprehensive user experience across a family of devices. A set of building block services that are a user-centric set of XML Web services that move control of user data from applications to users. For example, Microsoft Passport is a core component of the .NET initiative that makes it easier to integrate various applications.
XML Web services are programmable Web components that can be shared among applications on the Internet or the intranet. The .NET Framework provides tools and classes for building, testing, and distributing XML Web services.
Visual Studio .NET is a tool, which can be used to develop XML Web services and
Windows and Web applications for an enriched user experience.
