Microsoft .NET Framework (pronounced dot net) is a software framework developed by Microsoft that runs primarily on Microsoft Windows. It includes a large library and provides language interoperability (several languages can use the code written in other languages) across multiple programming languages. Programs written for .NET Framework execute in a software environment, known as the Common Language Runtime (CLR), an application virtual machine that provides services such as security, memory management, and exception handling. The class library and the CLR together constitute the .NET Framework.
The .NET Framework’s Base Class Library provides user interface, data access, database connectivity, cryptography, web application development, numeric algorithms, and network communications. Programmers produce software by combining their own source code with .NET Framework and other libraries. The .NET Framework is intended to be used by most new applications created for the Windows platform. Microsoft also produces an integrated development environment largely for .NET software called Visual Studio.
Microsoft .NET Framework Design Features:
Because computer systems often require interaction between newer and older applications, .NET Framework provides access to functionality implemented in newer and older programs that execute outside the .NET environment. Access to COM components is provided in the System.Runtime.InteropServices and System.EnterpriseServices namespaces of the framework; Access to other functionality is achieved using the P / Invoke feature.
– Common Language Runtime engine
The Common Language Runtime (CLR) serves as the execution engine of the .NET Framework. All .NET programs run under the supervision of the CLR, guaranteeing certain properties and behaviors in areas of memory management, security, and exception handling.
– Language independence
.NET Framework introduces a Common Type System, or CTS. The CTS specification defines all possible data types and programming constructs supported by the CLR and how they may or may not interact with each other in accordance with the Common Language Infrastructure (CLI) specification. Because of this feature, the .NET Framework supports the exchange of types and object instances between libraries and applications written using any conforming .NET language.
– Base Class Library
The Base Class Library (BCL), part of the Framework Class Library (FCL), is a library of functionality available to all languages using the .NET Framework. The BCL provides classes that encapsulate a number of common functions, including file read and write, graphic rendering, database interaction, XML document manipulation, and so on. It consists of classes, interfaces of reusable types that integrate with CLR (Common Language Runtime). – Simplified deployment .NET Framework includes design features and tools that help manage the installation of computer software to ensure that it does not interfere with previously installed software and complies with security requirements. – Security
The design addresses some of the vulnerabilities, such as buffer overflows, which have been exploited by malicious software. Additionally, .NET provides a common security model for all applications.
While Microsoft has never implemented the full framework for any system other than Microsoft Windows, it has engineered the framework to be platform-agnostic, and cross-platform implementations are available for other operating systems (see below for Silverlight and Alternative implementations). Microsoft has provided both ECMA and ISO the specifications for the Common Language Infrastructure (which includes the core class libraries, Common Type System, and Common Intermediate Language), the C # language and the C ++ / CLI language, making them available as official standards. This makes it possible for third parties to create compatible implementations of the framework and its languages on other platforms.
