Vb.net Overview

What is .NET ?

Many people reckon that it’s Microsoft’s way of controlling the Internet, which is false. .NET is Microsoft’s strategy of software that provides services to people any time, any place, on any device. An accurate definition of .NET is, it’s an XML Web Services  platform which allows us to build rich .NET applications, which allows users to interact with the Internet using wide range of smart devices (tablet devices, pocket PC’s, web phones etc), which allows to build and integrate Web Services and which comes with many rich set of tools like Visual Studio to fully develop and build those applications.

What are Web Services?

Web Services are the applications that run on a Web Server and communicate with other applications. It uses a series of protocols to respond to different requests. The protocols on which Web Services are built are listed below:

  • UDDI: Stands for Universal Discovery and Description Integration
