The Microsoft .NET Framework provides a dependable foundation for constructing smart client, Web, and mobile device-based applications that integrate by design and deploy efficiently across the enterprise. The key components of the .NET Framework are the common language runtime (CLR) and the .NET Framework class library, which includes Microsoft ADO.NET, Microsoft ASP.NET, and Windows Forms. The .NET Framework provides a managed execution environment, simplified development and deployment, and integration with a wide variety of programming languages. In version 2.0, the .NET Framework further extends the capabilities of developers by introducing significant enhancements across each of its functional areas. New classes give developers more efficient access to frequently used components, such as printers, the file system, and the registry. It also provides significant improvements to reliability and scalability.Johnson, Glenn is the author of 'Mcts Self-paced Training Kit (Exam 70-528) Microsoft .net Framework 2.0 Web-based Client Development', published 2006 under ISBN 9780735623347 and ISBN 0735623341.
