What is the difference between "Core Web Application" and "NET Framework"? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Maybe I did not ask question correctly, basically, what is the difference between the first two application types?

    See attached image, preferably explaining in plain language, just like explaining to non-IT folk, since I don't have computer science degree and IT job experience, I am just trying to learn to build application.

    Thanks.

  • Hi VA_er,

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    According to your question, I have the following explanation:

    ASP.NET Core is an open-source, cross-platform framework for building modern, cloud-based web apps on Windows, macOS, or Linux, while ASP.NET 4.x is a mature framework that provides the services needed to build enterprise-grade, server-based web apps on Windows.

    ASP.NET Web applications are available for .Net Framework 4.6.1 and earlier, while ASP.NET Core Web applications are available for .Net Core and/or .Net Framework 5.

    Best regards,

    Sara
