Web-Based Applications

The FCL includes support for creating web-based applications. This support is known as 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 FCL also includes a set of classes that manage session state, security, caching, debugging, tracing, localization, configuration, and deployment for web-based applications. Finally, the FCL includes the classes and attributes that produce and consume web services, which are described previously in this chapter in Section 5.12. Collectively, these capabilities are known as ASP.NET and are a complete replacement for ASP under Win32.
