A Groundbreaking Technological Revolution - ASP.NET vNext

Why is ASP.Net vNext the best development technology?

From this article, I would like to describe some of motivations behind the radical changes appear, why it's needed and how it's going to help moving forward with ASP.NET. ASP.NET vNext which is also called as Project K will really be a huge transformation for developers as already said is reformed from the scratch.

Considering .NET as the next generation on the server, ASP.NET vNext which is renewed from the very beginning to provide solutions for a wide range of challenges that arises during the development of any web applications. As an upgraded version of .NET, this technology has been optimized for efficient cloud web app development. ASP.NET vNext consists of revised versions of ASP.MVC, ASP.NET Web API, Web Pages, SignalR, and EF. The main enhancement made to these web development frameworks is that all three Web API, MVC and Web Pages have been integrated into a single programming model. Therefore, now there exists a single controller that returns both formatted Web API responses as well as MVC views on the similar HTTP verb.

Moreover, ASP.NET vNext utilizes the Roselyn compiler to create web applications with dynamism so it comes with a superior development experience (.Net compiler platform knows as "Roslyn", is a set of open-source compilers and code analysis API's for C# and visual Basic.NET languages from Microsoft). Developer has choice to choose editor and preferred platform for application development. The ASP.NET team has worked with the Mono team to make ASP.NET vNext and the Roselyn compiler existing in Mac and Linux to develop web app with ASP.NET.

However, today I planned to focusing on High-Level about .Net vNext features , advantages , developing web applications with suggested links , in next blog we go into Low-level of .Net vNext features in depth:

  • Completely modular
  • Cloud optimized
  • Uninterrupted transition from on-premises to cloud
  • Open source with contributions
  • Faster development cycle
  • Select your editors and tools
  • Roslyn
  • Mono
  • Cross-platform development
  • Lightening fast

Additional Contemporary Features in ASP.NET vNext
Along with the general productive characteristics, ASP.NET vNext also fosters in creating websites that are powered by CSS3, HTML5 and JavaScript. Its latest Web APIs in ASP.NET vNext support returns JSON and XML. Bolster real-time bi-directional client-server communication is provided in ASP.NET vNext through the ASP.NET SignalR library.

Advantages of ASP.NET vNext

  • Cloud and server-optimized
  • ASP.NET MVC and Web API have been unified into a single programming model
  • No-compile developer experience
  • Dependency injection out of the box
  • Side by side - deploy the runtime and framework with your application
  • NuGet everything - even the runtime itself
  • All Open Source via the .NET Foundation and takes contributions

Developing ASP.NET vNext Applications

As previously known ASP.NET vNext is still in examination phase, the standard warning says - evade presuming that it will be production quality or that feature behaviors will be the same when it is eventually realized.

To develop ASP.NET vNext app, it is necessary to get the Visual Studio 14 CTP. Pay attention to the fact that there are identified compatibility issues while installing Visual Studio 14 CTP along with Visual Studio 2013. It is very much recommended that Visual Studio 14 CTP should be set up on a virtual machine or on a clean installation.

Furthermore, developing a new-fangled ASP.NET vNext application is too effortless. Once Visual Studio 14 CTP is installed, launch Visual Studio and make a new Web Application based on template names ASP.NET vNext Empty Web application.

Conclusion
Web technologies are constantly changing and the speed at which these changes occur continues to pick up. ASP.NET vNext allows the ASP.NET team, third parties, and developers to keep up with these changes more easily by extending the platform into the future. As you can see from the fundamental changes in the feature set and the mentality for vNext, this is not a minor update. ASP.NET vNext is a major change that is as big as the step was from the original Active Server Pages to ASP.NET. The good news is that although the underlying platform and understanding have changed, the overarching concepts that developers learned with existing versions of ASP.NET are not lost at all. Developers still use frameworks like MVC, Web API, or SignalR and the syntax of those libraries isn't going to change significantly. Similarly, business logic that developer write with vNext using Entity Framework or even old ADO.NET isn't going to extremely change. If you use the Full CLR, most of the libraries you use today you can still use with vNext. It's still C# code (or VB.NET, F#, etc.) and the .NET Framework is underneath it all.

Keep in mind that all of your existing code will continue to run the same as it did before on existing ASP.NET sites. Just because Microsoft is announcing a shiny, brand-new stack doesn't mean that existing code is immediately obsolete. The full .NET runtime for desktop applications, the server CLR that hosts the existing System. Web stack, and also things like WCF, will continue to work just fine and still get updated and improved upon. ASP.NET vNext is an alternative and it doesn't make the existing technology old-fashioned.

The ASP.Net vNext will facilitate developers & programmers in swiftly creating custom cloud-based applications meeting specific requirements of clients. You can get in touch with a leading Microsoft Technology company who can assist you in developing web apps that are secure, scalable and stable.

Happy coding and stay tuned up for the next post.
