    .net is a platform
    C# is a language
    xml is (usually) a data storage method
    ASP = active server pages

    C# is just the Microsoft's Version of Java. Its totally different from and others.

    Other than there is PHP and JSP (Java Server Pages)
    If you are working on a website then I would recommend going for PHP and JSP.
  8. .net as alpha said is the platform
    C# is enhanced version of C++ for the users who know Java. is used to build web application with the help of two languages. C# or
    xml is used a temporary storage language but we dont consider xml as language. cuz it doesnt support OOPS concepts.

    if you want to build web application then u must learn with or C#.
    or if u want to build a Client Application then u must learn

    you dont need to learn and xml to write programs in C# cuz its different from xml and

    well ASP.Net is a technology to build web applications (eg: or and C# is a language which is used to do the coding.
    While C# can be used to code desktop applications/ console applications/ control libraries/ mobile applications C# can also be used to write server side code for ASP.Net web pages (.aspx extn)
    web application can be built on ASP/ ASP.Net/ JSP... and can be coded in C#/ VB.Net/ VBScript/ Javascript/ Java

    xml is extensible markup language commonly used as a standard format to transfer data from a database like SQL Server to your application or vice-versa... it is derived from SGML

    xml can be thought as a flat file representation of your database table as a set of hierarchical nodes

    can anyone suggest a good book to refer for and C# together... i've tried the Beginner's book for and C# by wrox publication.. but its not that satisfying...
  13. bsharp

    bsharp New Member

    Well... On the contrary..
    I find Wrox books are pretty good.. :think:
    Anyways. u can try some books of BPB Publications.. They are pretty good too.

    If you want, u can follow some pdfs(e-books) available..

    I think the best way to begin with either of C# or asp.Net etc is to follow a begnr edtn book ... u may get stuck often or not get clear about concepts or may have doubts (coz in the beginers edition u have every thing in brief n u may end up having cloudy ideas..)..
    In that case u can refer to websites,, w3schools, codeguru, 4guysfromrolla, etc etc. lots there...

    Coming to what is C# etc..
    C# : Its a programming language similar to Java.. U build appln using it.. just like C++ etc..
    if you have OOPs concepts then C# wont be a headache..
    Dot Net is like others said, is a platform.. u have ASP.NET to build web applns.. using any language like C#.NET or J#.NET or etc..

    ASP.NET will be a new thing if u r not so aware with Web Requests, postbacks etc etc .. U can refer to Wrox ASP.NET (Bgnrs edtn)..
    XML : Its like HTML..another mark up language..
    ITs lot used to keep data in XML formats .. and Many more uses... like Web services etc...

    let me know if the above is of any help to u.
    Cheers!! :beer:

    Coding in asp using scripting lang has lots overhead...n more over not as flexible as appln using ASP.NET..

    ASP.Net rocks!!!! :rock:
  15. bsharp

    bsharp New Member

    Well JSP rocks!!! but I wud suggest to go for JSP or ASP.NET instead of PHP..
    ASP.NET is damn cool..
    Try ASP.NET 2.0 .. it is very very sophisticated !!

    Both VBScript and JavaScript can be easily used with ASP.NET
    There are two ways to do that--
    1. Write the script part in the designer file
    2.Write the script commands as a part of code and call the script-builder function from your code.
