Building Modern Web Apps with ASP.Net

ASP.NET is often considered as ASP or Active Server Pages’ next version but it is more than that. A unified model for web development is provided by the platform which includes necessary services that can aid developers in the building of web applications. ASP.NET and ASP are quite syntax compatible and new programming infrastructure as well as model is provided by the former so that stable as well as scalable applications may be developed which will also provide better protection. So this ..NET based compiled environment helps in authoring of applications in any kind of language that is .NET compatible including .NET, Visual Basic, JScript .NET and C#.

.net application development servicesASP.NET applications can be built with the aid of XML Web Services or Web Forms or in combination with both. The very same infrastructure supports both and you can customize the application’s configuration or use authentication schemes. Windows XP Professional, 2000 and Server 2003 family supports the framework in case of both server as well as client applications. You also need some other software for the development of the server applications like.

  • Advanced Server or Windows 2000 Server with Service Pack 2, any of the family of Windows Server 2003, Windows 64-bit edition or XP Professional
  • Internet Information Services or IIS
  • MDAC 2.7 for Data.

In fact before distributing the application IIS roles as well as ASP.NET must be enabled. For deployment of such applications first a root directory must be created; then directory structure must be created under the root so that the application files may be contained. The app files then should be copied to the directory structure.

Root directory for ASP.NET application with IIS- For this a new directory has to be created and then the MMC or Microsoft Management Console must be opened for IIS. Then simply a virtual directory must be created. Then the root directory has to be marked as an application. The process of virtual directory creation is almost the same across the different platforms. You just have to make adjustments to the settings and follow the procedure as it runs. Even in case when you want to mark existing directories as web applications you need to open the MMC and adjust the properties.

Creating directory structure- For this open the created root directory at Windows Explorer or command prompt. Create new directory, naming it bin. Other directories, if required by the app can be created. The directory called bin is the app’s default assembly cache. For modifications in the app’s default configuration, web.config file can be created as well as required modifications made to save in root directory.

Deploying app files from command line- Click Start, then Run. There will be a dialog box of Run which will have a Open text box. Enter cmd there and press OK. Type a command with destination path and source path. If you get questions about the copying directory or files, answer them.

This is also a good framework for the building of responsive and modern web apps, especially if you want your app to load single HTML pages and then update the page dynamically while users interact with the application then SPAS or Single Page Applications may be used as well. HTML5 as well as AJAX are used by SPAs for the creation of responsive as well as fluid apps. This can be easily created with the help of open source JavaScript based frameworks. For that create Visual Studio Project, Service Layer, Web Client, MVVM and MVC patterns, web client with help of Knockout.js and view model one after the other. Data bindings must be done; records must be made editable.

ASP.NET helps you reap the maximum advantages of features like inheritance, type safety, versioning as well as language interoperability. In fact the existing ASP applications can be augmented through addition of this functionality.
