.NET or Java – Which Is Better?

Microsoft’s .NET, or ASP.NET framework, is a software designed for developing and executing applications on Windows operating systems. Though .NET can and does support connectivity with non-Windows systems, it provides features and functionalities that were specifically designed for running and creating applications on the Windows platform. Java, on the other hand, refers to a set of programs and standards, or a “programming language,” that is designed to have as few implementation dependencies as possible. Whereas .NET is designed to run on Microsoft platforms, Java is designed to run on all types of systems. Some people argue that one is better than the other, but the truth is that both come with their merits and pitfalls. Which is right for you really all depends on your needs and budget.
