NET Developer Platform By Matthew Lyons IN THIS CHAPTER Tight Language Interoperability Metadata JIT Compilation Garbage Collection Object-Oriented Programming Code Access Security Base Class Library Native Code Interoperability Over time, new technologies and new paradigms sweep through the computer industry. From mainframes to minicomputers to PCs to embedded computers, hardware has gotten smaller, faster, and less expensive. This has put an amazing amount of computing power at our fingertips.

Note that the performance enhancements for small, short-running processes will not be very great. NET applications, the speedup from JITted code can be significant. JITted code has some benefits over precompiled code, too. First, IL is the same everywhere. Thus, the same assembly that runs on Windows should (at least in theory) run on UNIX or MacOS, as long as the common language runtime exists on each platform. Second, even if the same assembly is always run on Windows, a JIT compiler can take advantage of optimizations from different processors.

NET assemblies do not pop up an Authenticode UI that requires user interaction. They just load and run in the secured environment. NET Framework. NET Framework code execution paths. NET controls cannot be enabled if ActiveX controls are disabled. NET controls in some situations. NET Framework. Thus, existing clients will not be able to leverage these controls without extra work. Again, cross-platform assembly compatibility is still up in the air. It seems likely that some level of compatibility will be achieved, but the details are not yet known.
