Porting Classic ASP / VB applications to .NET
With the advent of .NET technologies, OffshoreDotNetDevelopment has witnessed many of its clients demanding a migration from their traditional ASP and VB based platforms to the .NET platform. So, why porting or migrating ASP to .NET framework environment is becoming increasingly popular, to meet the business automation challenges?
Due to their foundational similarities, migrating ASP to ASP.NET is a natural progression for the extensibility of the existing application. One of the biggest advantages of utilizing the .NET framework for porting ASP to .NET is that both ASP and ASP.NET are based on the same web server. So compatibility issues between the existing system and the .NET system are minimized. Moreover, ASP .NET applications are capable of handling two to three times more number of requests as compared to classic ASP application; thereby making the system more powerful. Due to the increased stability of a .NET application at runtime, migration of classic ASP / VB applications to .NET or ASP.NET is a very attractive choice for our clients. In addition to this, taking VB6 to .NET conversion services has also become a popular option to reduce development span to a great extent.
ASP.NET comes with many technologically superior features that reduce the development efforts as well as the lines of code. While it seems that migrating ASP to .NET framework only involves changing the file extensions from .ASP to .ASPX, in reality there are various levels of porting that may be applied to the system. On one hand some applications require the implementation of some very basic porting mechanisms and syntactical changes, and on the other hand, the rich features of ASP.NET and VB.NET such as ASP .NET web controls, Microsoft ADO .NET, the Microsoft .NET framework classes etc. can be put to use, to develop the new system. Many a times, due to time constraints we undertake simple .NET migration service of the system in order to make the application graduate to the .NET technology. On other occasions, when our clients demand their applications to be feature rich, we have developed the entire system from the grounds up. However, most commonly, we opt for the gradual step by step porting of the application keeping the underlying COM components, defining the business rules of the system and efficiently porting the user interface of the application.
With our diverse experience in handling various migration projects from ASP to ASP.NET or VB6 to .NET Conversion Services, the OffshoreDotNetDevelopment team has catered to varied interests of our clients keeping in mind the constraints on time and cost. This makes us the popular choice for all kinds ofmigration needs.
