 Visual Studio .net is a superb next-generation development tool. At its heart is the .Net Framework, a runtime engine and class library that enables rapid application building for both Windows and Web applications. The runtime engine handles housekeeping like memory management, while also providing fine-grained security and version awareness. The class library reduces the code needed to build rich applications. Visual Studio also provides a slick visual environment, with features like tabbed and docking windows, dynamic online help, and automatic code completion and hints. The common runtime is language-neutral, so for example Visual Basic programmers can use components written in C#, and vice versa. Other languages such as COBOL and Fortran can plug into Visual Studio, and Microsoft provides a version of the Java language called J#. These two languages along with J# have full support for the visual design tools. Also included is JScript .Net, Microsoft's version of Javascript, although this has no form designer. Visual C++ is more similar to earlier versions, and is the only compiler here that can build old-style Windows executables. With a compiler switch, it can also target .Net, making it particularly flexible.

The Enterprise edition has source code management with Visual SourceSafe, performance testing and analysis tools. It also includes developer versions of many of Microsoft's server products, including SQL Server, Commerce Server, Exchange Server, and the Windows 2000 Advanced Server operating system. These are licensed for development only, but even so it is a rich range of products. Finally, there is the ability to use Enterprise Templates. New in Visual Studio .net, these are sophisticated skeleton projects that assist organisations in maintaining consistent best practices. The twist is that while Enterprise Developer can use these templates, it cannot create them. For that you need the high-end Enterprise Architect.

Visual Studio .NET simplifies the development of XML Web services and Web solutions. Visual Studio .NET has many enhancements and new features, such as a single, integrated development environment, object-oriented features in Microsoft Visual Basic .NET, and Web development tools. In addition, Visual Studio .NET Enterprise Developer includes core capabilities for building scalable and reliable applications in a team development environment.

Visual Studio .NET Enterprise Developer includes developer editions of the .NET Enterprise Servers, including Windows .NET Server, making it easier to build applications that can be scaled to meet the requirements of a global organization. Also, Visual Studio .NET enables developers to perform functional and load testing of XML Web services and applications, making sure that any issues can be uncovered and fixed early in the development cycle.

With Visual Studio .NET Enterprise Developer, rapidly build the next generation of applications, from Windows to n-tier applications composed of XML Web services that target any device and integrate with any platform. Use the software's tools for building XML Web services and applications. New features enable visual development of business logic components. Build, leverage, and extend scalable XML Web services with built-in support for publishing and accessing XML Web services regardless of the platform they are running on.
