For everyone who seems confused after reading vNext, here is the answer to your question. ASP.NET vNext is the next version of ASP.NET web framework. This framework unites ASP.NET MVC as well as Web API into one model and it is cross platform. It was going to be called ASP.NET 5.0 on the release. However, now it is going to be named ASP.NET Core 1.0. As it is new for developers, businesses and everyone else, it is important for all to know what is the new framework all about and how will ASP.NET vNext affect everyone.
Here are a few facts about ASP.NET vNext that everyone needs to know.
1. Combined application models: The best thing about it is that, it combines not only MVC and Web API, but also SignalR and web pages; everything into one framework which is together known as MVC 6. In short, ASP.NET MVC6 goes well with model, view and controller and it does not require System.Web anymore. This is one of the most amazing things, as we are approaching towards the vision of ‘One ASP.NET’ finally and different technologies can use the same code patterns now. This is how Microsoft has taken the world of web application development to the next level.
2. Two CLR versions: When it comes to the ASP.NET framework versions, there are two main versions; one is the regular one, and another is the ‘CoreCLR’, which is known as Core Common Language Runtime. The regular one is known as the Desktop CLR or Full CLR. However, the CoreCLR is the cut down version of the Full CLR, it is open source and it is known for the optimization of high throughput with low memory. It is also known as Cloud Optimized. Both CLR versions are great, but ASP.NET will decide as to which one to choose on the basis of the dependencies needed. These benefits of CoreCLR will allow you to do cross platform deployment and will result into simple deployment models and the problems related to version conflicts will be lesser.
3. New compiler: The new ASP.NET vNext uses ‘Rosyln’ compiler which is written in its own language; for example: C# complier will be written in C#. This technology is super fast and it lets you use the ‘edit and run’ capabilities. It is an open source complier and it is hosted on GIthub. The developers do not need to compile the dot net app and deploy it, as the code files can be deployed and it will be compiled in place. This will be extremely beneficial, as if the deployment method is simple, the way ASP.NET apps are developed and deployed will change.
Now that you are aware of the most important things about ASP.NET vNext, it is advisable to keep these points in mind before you use the framework to develop your next website or application using ASP.NET, so that you can make the most out of it and take your business to the next level in no time.
