.NET vs. Frontpage

C T
My work is about to have me use Frontpage 2002 to build and maintain an
intranet web site.

I'm trying to draw a comparison between the two, but I'm having trouble
finding info about .NET.

Would it be reasonable to demand I get use .NET studio?

Thanks,
Craig

dear friend;
actully you can use frontpage with vs. but i donot think you can compain
between them. there for you can design the html code there then copy and pass
it to vs. html side and it can beused this way. donot forget to open a folder
for images in vs. if you use images in fronpage, and copy all images there.

Trouble finding information about Visual Studio and the .NET Framework?
Try starting here:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/

The tool choice should be driven by the functional requirements for the web
site and your design for meeting them.
Are you planning to use client side or server side automation?
Is there a database involved?
Are you planning to use n-tier architecture?
What programming/scripting languages are you comfortable with?
Basically, with more detailed information, it's impossible to say if
demanding Visual Studio is reasonable or unreasonable.

frontpage has a nasty habit of re-writing your code for you. if you use a
mix of tools, this could be a problem for you. it was for me. if you have
anything that will be database-driven, then use VS.

One more response maybe? :-)

FrontPage is used to do web design page layout. FrontPage has a text editor
to write HTML and some enbedded ASP.NET but FrontPage does not support
code-behind, does not have native support for dragging and dropping ASP.NET
controls (no ToolBox) and does not have many other features that are helpful
when developing ASP.NET or Windonws Forms applications which is why we use
Visual Studio .NET fpr ASP.NET 1.1 or Visual Studio 2005 for ASP.NET 2.0.

Furthermore, FrontPage 2003 is the only release that supports ASP.NET 1.1 oe
2.0 and it does not do it very well at all but it is still useful to use
FrontPage do page layout and then close the files (required) and reopen them
in Visual Studio to write code-behind for your ASP.NET applications.

If you are developing an Intranet you need to learn about and possibly use
Windows SharePoint Services which comes with Windows Server 2003. FrontPage
works with SharePoint which is Microsoft's Intranet platform.

CT,

If you have to make a website with a lot of database or other kind of
transactions, than I opt for Visual Studio.

If you make webpages that are more based on a fancy desing part, which have
quick to be rebuild and easy to change, than I would go for Frontpage.

Another comparising can be, if you write everything on client side direct in
HTML and Javascript than you will probably like Visual Studio.

If you are draging and dropping a lot of components which are very much at
hand in Front Page than probably you like that more.

Maybe needles to say that my favorite in this is Visual Studio.

An extra benefit is from the last that you can build with Visual Studio
pages with diverent kind of Microsoft managed code scripting in it at
server side.

However you can as well seperate the logic as ILS code in apart build DLL's
(often descripted as code behind). Those DLL's you can place on a secure
place on your server. A conter part on that is that it "can" make it again
more dificult to change something simple in a page withouth renewing that
complete build DLL.

It is not which is better, however which is better for you.

There is a lot more, however I hope that this gives a starting idea.

Do you develop .NET applications? If so, it is wiser to have Visual Studio
..NET.

Do you develop ASP applications? If so, it is wiser to have Visual Studio 6,
although you can do most ASP work in FrontPage.

If you are merely designing and doing small amounts of code, I would stick
with FrontPage, although I would upgrade to 2003, as it is a nicer
experience, esp. when coding small amounts of ASP.NET.
