What is Dot Net Architecture and its benefits
Architecture is a key feature and the initial step towards the development of web applications. Microsoft Dot Net Architecture is a unique combination of traditional Microsoft technologies and modern Web Service prototypes. It also provides a reliable, scalable and trustworthy environment for developing robust web applications.
Using Dot Net architecture it is easy to reduce time and cost for developing and maintaining enterprise business applications. As it supports the exchange of data between different programs through a common set of read/write formats and protocols. The Dot Net architecture is widely used for developing database driven websites and web applications. Software interoperability can also be achieved which helps in better software integration by implementing the Dot Net architecture.
The key features of the Dot Net Architecture supports the software applications such as:
1. N-tier Enterprise application Architecture.
2. Dot Net Remote Architecture (using TCP/HTTP protocol).
3. Microsoft Message Queuing (MSMQ) for asynchronous message delivery.
4. Active Directory Service Interface (ADSI) for better user access control.
5. Windows services for supporting background processes.
6. Web services using XML – SOAP/HTTP.
7. Advanced ADO.NET features.
8. Centralized exception/error handling.
9. Design patterns.
N-Tier is the term used for multiple tier or multiple layers. n-Tier Architecture splits the solution process into different projects based on the business requirements. The main advantage of using n-Tier is that the complexity associated with the business and the process is reduced and it is easy to work with.
Benefits of using Dot Net architecture
??1. The Microsoft Dot Net architecture platform is dependence on XML for data exchange. It enables XML Web services to interoperate whatever their source language.
2. Developers can build reusable XML Web services instead of monolithic applications.
3. ??The ability to easily find available XML Web services means you can buy pieces of your applications rather than build everything from scratch, focusing your time and money where it makes the most sense.
??4. Easier to build sophisticated development tools – debuggers and profilers can target
5. The Common Language Runtime, and thus become accessible to all .NET-enabled languages.
??6. Potentially better performance in system level code for memory management,
7. Garbage collection, and the like have yielded an architecture that should meet or exceed performance of typical COM-based applications today.
??8. Fewer bugs, as whole classes of bugs should be unknown in .NET. With the CLR handling memory management, garbage collection.
