ASP.NET

ASP.NET is an open-source server-side Web application framework designed for Web development to produce dynamic Web pages. It was developed by Microsoft to allow programmers to build dynamic web sites, web applications and web services. ASP.NET is in the process of being re-implemented as a modern and modular web framework, together with other frameworks like Entity Framework. The new framework will make use of the new open-source.NET Compiler Platform. ASP.NET is a set of technologies in the Microsoft.NET Framework for building Web applications and XML Web services. ASP.NET pages execute on the server and generate mark up such as HTML, WML, or XML that is sent to a desktop or mobile browser. ASP.NET pages use a compiled, event-driven programming model that improves performance and enables the separation of application logic and user interface.

Microsoft SQL Server

is a relational database management system developed by Microsoft. As a database server, it is a software product with the primary function of storing and retrieving data as requested by other software applications which may run either on the same computer or on another computer across a network (including the Internet).

This helps in:
  • Implementing Tables and Views
  • Implementing Indexes
  • Implementing Stored Procedures and Functions
  • Implementing In-Memory Objects
  • Optimizing and Troubleshooting Queries
  • Recommended Resources and Next Steps

WCF Data Service

WCF Data Service is a .net component used to expose or consume data using OData protocol in form of REST (Representational State Transfer). Before .net framework 4.5 it was called "ADO.Net Data Service". It is also a WCF service, but it is intended to communicate data using OData (atom feeds or JSON) using HTTP verbs like GET, PUT, POST, DELETE etc. WCF is a service layer that allows you to build applications that can communicate using a variety of communication mechanisms. With it, you can communicate using Peer to Peer, Named Pipes, and Web Services and so on. WCF is a framework for building interoperable applications.

Advantages of WCF:
  • It is interoperable with other services when compared to .Net Remoting where the client and service have to be .Net
  • It provides better reliability and security
  • It has integrated logging mechanism.

Entity Frame Work

Writing and managing ADO.Net code for data access is a tedious and monotonous job. Microsoft has provided an O/RM framework called "Entity Framework" to automate database related activities for your application.

The Microsoft ADO.NET Entity Framework is an Object/Relational Mapping (ORM) framework that enables developers to work with relational data as domain-specific objects, eliminating the need for most of the data access plumbing code that developers usually need to write. Using the Entity Framework, developers issue queries using LINQ. The Entity Framework's ORM implementation provides services like change tracking, identity resolution, lazy loading, and query translation so that developers can focus on their application-specific logic rather than the data access fundamentals.

SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS)

is a server-based report generation software system from Microsoft. It is part of suite of Microsoft SQL Server services. SSRS enables users to quickly and easily generate reports from Microsoft SQL Server databases.

The SSRS service provides a unique interface into Microsoft Visual Studio so that developers as well as SQL administrators can connect to SQL databases and use SSRS tools to format SQL reports in many complex ways. Administered via a Web interface, it can be used to prepare and deliver a variety of interactive and printed reports. SSRS competes with Crystal Reports and other business intelligence tools.
