The -NET Framework is a development and execution environment that allows different programming languages and libraries to work together seamlessly to create Microsoft Windows-based applications that are easier to build, manage, deploy, and integrate with other networked systems.

The -NET Framework consists of:

- The Common Language Runtime (CLR)

A language-neutral development and execution environment that provides services to help "manage" application execution

- The FrameworClass Library (FCL)

A consistent, object-oriented library of prepackaged functionality

The -NET Framework provides the basic infrastructure that Windows-based applications need to make Microsoft's -NET vision of connecting information, people, systems, and devices a reality:

- Support for standard networking protocols andspecifications

The -NET Framework uses standard Internet protocols and specifications such as TCP/IP, SOAP, XML, and HTTP to allow a broad range of information, people, systems, and devices to be connected

- Support for different platforms

The -NET Framework is available for a variety of Windows platforms, allowing people, systems, and devices to be connected using different computing platforms. People using desktop platforms such as Windows XP or device platforms such as Windows CE can connect to server systems by using Windows Server 2003

The CLR is responsible for run-time services such as language integration, security enforcement, and memory, process, and thread management. In addition, the CLR has a role at development time when features such as life-cycle management, strong type naming, cross-language exception handling, and dynamic binding reduce the amount of code that a developer must write to turn business logic into a reusable component
