Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Microsoft Platform is the only viable solution when I wish to do something that is not supposed to be cross-platform.""If we take low code, no code platform such as RPA platforms, you might end up writing 100 lines of code and you might do it in a single line of code using. NET.""The most valuable features for us are web frameworks like MVC, Web API, and WCS.""The solution is easy to use.""The .NET Framework is a very good framework. It does what I need it to do.""Basically, .NET is simply is the easiest programming language to use, based on my experience."

"In Oracle SOA Suite some applications are not able to use REST, but it can support both SOAP and REST. You're able to integrate quite a lot of systems, which may not be able to in other solutions. You can also use XML and JSON. It is a standardizing type of tool. It doesn't matter whether I'm using JSON or XML, it can convert them.""This is one of the critical products for my company and we use it extensively. We currently use each and every feature of Oracle SOA.""In case there is something that doesn't work out of the box, you have the flexibility to customize it."

Cons
"This solution is best used with some training.""It is of great concern to us that the solution is not very powerful on cross platform, at it impedes the ability to build and scale with it.""You need to have the technical expertise to use this product.""I would like to see more pre-built features in the MVC framework because as it is now, it's very open and you have to develop your own controls in order to use it."".NET Is still heavy or dependant on other Microsoft libraries and frameworks.""The solution could improve by optimizing the memory for better performance."

"An important area that can be improved is the product's data monitoring. When we use the solution for interfacing or end-to-end data monitoring, we want to know exactly where the data is going and exactly where it is failing, or where there is an issue.""They supply lots of documentation but finding what we need is challenging at times.""The technical support is good, we have premier support which costs extra."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The Microsoft .NET Framework is free of charge, without licensing cost."
  • "For the moment I can only give the product a rating of five out of ten since only some of the customers will be satisfied, those that have the financial resources for hosting a platform on Windows Server."
  • "The solution is free but you need to pay for a license for the hosting service."
  • "Microsoft .NET Framework is licensed under the Windows License."

    Overview

    Microsoft .NET Framework is a software development framework for building and running applications for Windows, Windows Phone, Windows servers, XML Web services, and Microsoft Azure. The software is made up of two major components: Common Language Runtime (CLR) and the .NET Framework Class Library. The CLR is the execution engine that handles running apps and the Class Library is a library of tested, reusable code that developers can call from their own apps.

    Microsoft .NET Framework Features

    Microsoft .NET Framework has many valuable key features. Some of the most useful ones include:

    • Memory management: With Microsoft .NET Framework apps, the CLR allocates and releases memory and handles object lifetimes in many programming languages, so programmers are not responsible to do it.
    • Multitargeting: Microsoft .NET Framework targets .NET Standard, allowing developers to create class libraries that work on multiple Microsoft .NET Framework platforms.
    • A common type system: When using Microsoft .NET Framework, basic types are defined by the .NET Framework type system and are common to all languages that target Microsoft .NET Framework as opposed to traditional programming languages where basic types are defined by the compiler.
    • Side-by-side execution: By allowing multiple versions of the common language runtime to exist on the same computer, Microsoft .NET Framework helps resolve version conflicts. In addition, an app can run on the version of Microsoft .NET Framework with which it was built and multiple versions of apps can coexist.
    • Development frameworks and technologies: Microsoft .NET Framework provides libraries for specific areas of app development, such as ASP.NET for web apps, ADO.NET for data access, Windows Communication Foundation for service-oriented apps, and Windows Presentation Foundation for Windows desktop apps.

    Microsoft .NET Framework Benefits

    There are many benefits to implementing Microsoft .NET Framework. Some of the biggest advantages the solution offers include:

    • Language interoperability: With this Microsoft .NET Framework feature, routines written in one language are accessible to other languages, enabling programmers to focus on creating apps in their preferred languages.
    • Version compatibility: Microsoft .NET Framework offers version compatibility for rare occasions when apps that are developed by using a particular version of Microsoft .NET Framework happen to run without modification on a later version.
    • Extensive class library: With Microsoft .NET Framework, programmers have the ability to use a readily accessible Microsoft .NET Framework class library instead of having to write vast amounts of code to handle common low-level programming operations.

    Reviews from Real Users

    Below are some reviews and helpful feedback written by PeerSpot users currently using the Microsoft .NET Framework solution.

    PeerSpot user, Syed A., Principal System Developer at a government, says the solution is a “Great all in one framework with extensive stack for web applications, windows applications and mobile applications.”

    A QA Supervisor at a manufacturing company mentions, “It comes with many features that you can interact with and has all of the libraries readily available, which is not available in the RPA platforms. You can create your own SSIS package. You can integrate with all of the Windows objects, which is not available in Automation Anywhere, and you need to rely on their Object Cloning technologies to interact with them.”

    Brennan G., IS Technical Architect at Avara Foods Holdings Limited, comments, “It is easy to use, and it runs on a Windows platform. The .NET Framework is a very good framework. It does what I need it to do.”

    Oracle SOA Suite is a comprehensive, standards-based software suite to build, deploy and manage integration following the concepts of service-oriented architecture (SOA). The components of the suite benefit from consistent tooling, a single deployment and management model, end-to-end security and unified metadata management. Oracle SOA Suite helps businesses lower costs by allowing maximum re-use of existing IT investments and assets, regardless of the environment (OS, application server, etc.) they run in, or the technology they were built upon. Its easy-to-use, re-use focused, unified application development tooling and end-to-end lifecycle management support further reduces development and maintenance cost and complexity.
