  • .NET is a new Internet and Web based infrastructure
  • .NET delivers software as Web Services
  • .NET is a framework for universal services
  • .NET is a server centric computing model
  • .NET will run in any browser on any platform

  • UDDI, the standard to search and discover Web Services

The .NET Framework contains common class libraries – like ADO.NET, ASP.NET and Windows Forms – to provide advanced standard services that can be integrated into a variety of computer systems. .NET Framework is language neutral. Currently it supports C++, C#, Visual Basic, JScript (The Microsoft version of JavaScript) and COBOL. Third-party languages – like Eiffel, Perl, Python, Smalltalk, and others – will also be available for building future .NET Framework applications.
The new Visual Studio.NET is a common development environment for the new .NET Framework. It provides a feature-rich application execution environment, simplified development and easy integration between a number of different development languages.
C# is an object-oriented programming language developed by Microsoft as part of their .NET initiative. C# has a procedural, object-oriented syntax based on C++ that includes aspects of several other programming languages with a particular emphasis on simplification.
