Web-Based Applications

The BCL includes support for creating web-based applications. This support is called Web Forms and consists of a server-side forms package that generates HTML UI, a predefined set of HTML-based GUI widgets, and a component model suited to RAD designer tools. The BCL also includes a set of classes that manage session state, security, caching, debugging, tracing, localization, configuration, and deployment for web-based applications. Finally, the BCL includes the classes and attributes that produce and consume web services, which were described previously in Section 4.11. Collectively, these capabilities are known as ASP .NET and are a complete replacement for ASP under Win32.
