Migrating to the MVC framework from your existing .NET applications

With the evolution of ASP.NET framework from web forms, the earliest web application platform released by Microsoft, which only provided server controls, to the latest version, the .NET Core MVC framework, with all its updated features, migration from the former to the latter ASP.NET framework packages becomes inevitable at some point for multiple reasons, be it for a cross-platform access requirement or Microsoft ending support for an older version with the newer version .NET applications framework.

For whatever reasons you plan on migrating from your existing .NET framework to the .NET Core MVC framework, the process may include source code changes, third-party dependency changes or completely excluding a dependency. Our knowledgeable developers are capable of providing you with a unique solution for any kind of challenging .NET framework migration and provide assistance starting from analysing how easily portable your web application is, which tabs are incompatible or missing, to deploying it in the targeted platform successfully.

Why migrate your existing .NET application to the new MVC framework?

Backward compatibility which allows any older version of the .NET framework to run on a new version of the .NET framework has always been an available option. Although, some versions of the .NET framework do not allow side-by-side installations of the .NET framework. Apart from that, for a large web application, which requires regular up-gradation, with the .NET Core MVC framework, it becomes easier.

Security – .NET Core MVC framework is a stable framework that provides protection against XSRF/CSRF attacks, preventing the end-user from having to submit unwanted web requests that can lead to manipulation of clients or server data or data leakage.

Web API service – The Representational State Transfer (REST) series of Web API which works on the HTTP protocol, with its flexible, scalable and stateless nature, allows a cross-platform run-time environment for web applications, to run on operating systems including Microsoft Windows, Linux, and macOS. In the .NET Core MVC framework, the APIs which are tightly bound to windows Winforms and WPF are removed and APIs required only for your application are packaged together.

MVC framework architecture– The modular architecture of the .NET Core MVC framework improves solutions performance as they come with NuGet packages, a Visual Studio extension that allows easy optimization of the application with its unified BCL (base class library), Core CLR and managed runtime.

Markup language – .NET Core comes with Razor markup syntax provides a minimum transition between HTML and code producing a fully HTML 5 compliant webpages. Additional advantages includes IntelliSense support (context-based code completion), unit testing (Individual source codes are tested) and layouts (including .cshtml and .vbhtml).

Dependency– The .NET Core MVC framework comes with an in-built dependency injection which provides a better implementation of Inversion of control (IOC).

Our experienced ASP.NET developers are up-to-date with the newest technologies and utilizing all the features that best suit your application needs, achieve smooth transitioning while migrating either from your ASP.NET or ASP.NET MVC to .NET Core framework.
