A Journey from ASP.NET Framework to ASP.NET Core

Initial development with ASP.NET framework

Initially, projects were developed using ASP.NET Framework, which provided various options for user interfaces.

  • Windows forms (WinForms): For desktop applications with rich UI controls.
  • Windows presentation foundation (WPF): For desktop applications with advanced graphics and multimedia support.
  • ASP.NET web forms: For web applications with a component-based UI model and event-driven programming.

Transition to ASP.NET MVC

  • As web development evolved, ASP.NET MVC (Model-View-Controller) emerged as a popular framework for building web applications using the ASP.NET Framework. ASP.NET MVC introduced a more structured approach to web development, separating concerns into models, views, and controllers.
  • ASP.NET MVC allowed developers to create web applications with cleaner code architecture, better testability, and improved control over HTML markup.

Introduction of ASP.NET Core

  • With the advent of .NET Core, Microsoft introduced ASP.NET Core, a cross-platform, high-performance framework for building modern web applications and services.
  • ASP.NET Core MVC is the web framework included in ASP.NET Core, providing similar functionality to ASP.NET MVC but with enhancements and optimizations for performance, scalability, and cross-platform development.

Integration of AngularJS and Angular

  • While ASP.NET Framework and ASP.NET Core MVC provide server-side rendering of UI components, it's common to integrate client-side frameworks like AngularJS (for older projects) or Angular (for newer projects) to build interactive, dynamic user interfaces.
  • In the ASP.NET Framework, AngularJS can be integrated with server-side code to create single-page applications (SPAs) and enhance the user experience.
  • In ASP.NET Core, Angular is often preferred for its modern features, performance, and ecosystem support. ASP.NET Core provides seamless integration with Angular for building SPAs or using Angular components within server-rendered views
