Microsoft updates ASP.Net Software

by Irving A
Microsoft is upgrading its ASP.Net software. It will as well be adding mobile web function capabilities in order to build web applications that load faster. Earlier this month Asp.Net MVC 4 beta was released. This new beta enables development of web applications by means of the Model View controller architectural pattern. This release is built on the beta version of Visual Studio/Net Framework 4.5 that will be released on Wednesday. Corporate vice president in Microsoft server and tools business, Scott Guthrie, blogged that the features will enable you to build web applications that will load faster and feel more responsive to users through the minimizing of number and size of the HTTP request. He adds that” ‘cache busting’ helper methods to enable proxy caching of bundle files, with automatic invalidation if cached CSS or JavaScript are changed”. ASP.Net MVC 4 includes the jQuery Mobile Web framework for the mobile web applications. It adds support for customizing which view templates are used depending on the type of device using the application either on a Smartphone or a tablet. Database migration capabilities are offered via Entity Framework 4.3, allowing for database schema evolve by using a code-focused migration approach. Another update of the ASP.Net MVC 4 is version 2 of Microsoft’s Razor view engine which includes enhancements that allow for creating view templates even cleaner and concise. Overall ‘WebSockets support built into .Net 4.5 can be leveraged also, providing richer browser-server communication’ said Guthrie.

ASP.Net is a web application framework developed by Microsoft to allow programmers to build dynamic web sites, as well as web applications and web services. ASP.Net is built on Common Language Runtime allowing programmers to write ASP.Net code using any supported .Net language. APS.Net has a SOAP extension framework which allows ASP.Net components to process SOAP messages. ASP.Net applications are hosted by a web server and are accessed using the stateless HTTP protocol.

We are currently learning about ASP.Net. We are going to start working on it in class as well as implement it in our third project.
