Top Ten New and Exciting Features in ASP.NET 2.0
ASP.NET 1.0 was a revolutionary advance in developing Web Applications. With its fully complied, highly extensible Server-Side control model, it was one of the best applications of Microsoft’s .NET runtime. It solved many of the issues plaguing ASP developers, and kept the development-centric philosophy that made ASP such a huge hit amongst the web-client community.
But problems remained with the ASP.NET 1.0 release, not an entirely unexpected situation given it was, after all, a 1.0 product. Developers found themselves writing a lot more code than they thought was good, and it was more difficult than it should have been to keep presentation and business logic well-partitioned and separate.
With ASP.NET 2.0, the ASP.NET team has continued to lead the way in making developer’s daily lives more enjoyable.
