Microsoft .Net (Dot Net) Development
Microsoft® .NET is a set of Microsoft software technologies for
connecting information, people, systems, and devices. It enables a high level
of software integration through the use of Web services—small, discrete,
building-block applications that connect to each other as well as to other,
larger applications over the Internet.
The Components of Microsoft .NET-Connected Software
.NET is infused into the products that make up the Microsoft platform,
providing the ability to quickly and reliably build, host, deploy, and utilize
connected solutions using Web services, all with the protection of
industry-standard security technologies.
||"Smart" client application software and operating systems enable PCs and other
smart computing devices to act on Web services, allowing anywhere, anytime
access to information.
||Microsoft and others are developing a core set Web services—from authentication
to calendaring—that can be combined with other Web services or used directly
with smart client applications. The Microsoft MapPoint® Web Service allows you
to integrate high-quality maps, driving directions, and other location
intelligence into your applications, business processes, and Web sites is an
example of one of these services.
||Microsoft provides the best server infrastructure—the Microsoft Windows Server
System™—for deploying, managing, and orchestrating Web services.
||Microsoft Visual Studio® .NET and the Microsoft .NET Framework are a complete
solution for developers to build, deploy, and run Web services.
Building solutions with .NET technologies, you can create and connect to an
infinite variety of personalized .NET experiences, with industry-standard
technologies helping to protect your security and safety. Individuals can enjoy
rich, tailored interactions—.NET experiences—when Web services are pulled
together, allowing access to information across the Internet and from
stand-alone applications, online or offline.
