c#

P: n/a
I'm just curious about C#. Lets say that I wanted to
develop a database application entirely in c# and on .NET.
Once completed, debugged and compiled, could I then save
the files or project on a disk or cd rom? Then could I
also dowload it into a floppy or cd rom and install it
onto another computer like a pc? When I say install, what
I mean is that could I run the database application as a
complete standalone exe application, even if that pc does
not have the.NET environment. Also, how does this differ
to Java where standalone applications can be developed?

Regards
Anthony

If the destination has .Net Framework installed, then it will work

You mean you can run java application withould JRE installed? I don't
think so. Such applications probably provide their own JRE during
installation process.

Well, there are static compilers such as Excelsior JET which
effectively includes a JRE-like environment as part of the executable
you deploy.

Hi

When using the standard Microsoft compiler, you will need the .NET Framework
installed on the designation computer. There are Third Party compliers
around that will compile a exe that includes the .NET asms that you use in
to you exe, making it possible to run you application on a machine with out
the framework. (I remember there being on this newsgroup, a post regarding
such a third party complier.)

Standard with Visual Studio .NET, you can make setup projects, that create
setup packages for you that will check for Framework. I suggest that you
look at these if you are going to make a commercial product.

What sort of plan do you have for you database. Will it be Client-Server, or
will the data base sit on the client machine's disk. Depending on what type
of database you use, you may need to install data provider software on the
client's machine.

Hope this is a help

There are posts about such products being under development, but I
don't believe any have been released yet.

Yes, that's what I'd suggest too.

Hmmm... looks like it's been moving on since I last heard about it.
Good to know about. Thanks.
