.NET

The .NET framework is useful when developing applications that run in real time environments. It produces very efficient and well controlled binaries that perform well. With the introduction of Xamarin and other tools, the .NET framework is also useful at providing cross platform support, which can reduce development times and provide a better source code management situation. However, .NET is not the ideal choice for small businesses or independent developers who may not want to deal with licensing concerns.

Oracle WebLogic Suite

All in all a very robust product for Oracle application deployments with its ease of use, scalability, packed functionality and scalability.

Cons

.NET

  • We've found that depending on the type of application that you're developing, resource usage can be high at times. This is something that we've needed to keep in mind especially during peak usage of our applications.
  • We've found that dependency management can be an issue at times. This has messed up our builds once in a while.
  • Better and real-world online examples of new methods and classes would be beneficial.

Oracle WebLogic Suite

  • Error messages. This is perhaps the biggest area that needs improvement. They can be cryptic as all get out sometimes. Then again, that can be a fault for the whole system.
  • Backend configuration - sometimes you just don't know where things lay on the backend: where data-stores are located, what directory is this really pulling a deployed file from. There are reasons that Oracle provides (for a fee) training and certification classes.

The first thing that comes in mind is the IDE is a software suite that provides must-have tools for a developer to build and test software applications. The default IDE for .NET applications is Microsoft Visual Studio, which is a sophisticated tool to build apps. Intellisense is a favorite for developers to write code easily without remembering all the functions at the time of development. It supports multiple programming languages - C#, VB, F#, C++ based on individual skill sets.

You don't often need to reach out to Microsoft for .NET support. If you do, there are forums and websites that have active Microsoft support folks where you can provide feedback or get help. Microsoft support in general is quite good as well, but not cheap. The best support is from the community like StackOverflow.

Alternatives Considered

.NET

We evaluated Java as a platform for custom development. There were many advantages to using Java like - Java is portable, so you can choose whatever operating system you need to build your app or website. Object-relational support is better, and Java calls the database less often, keeping everything in domain objects.But possible security breaches are the main concern when it comes to Java, because such issues occur more often in platform-agnostic solutions. On top of that, Scala functions don’t work well with Groovy, requiring advanced software developing skills. Also, some developers claim that Java can be slower than other languages because of its multi-platform nature.

Return on Investment

.NET

  • I have not been required to pay for using .NET, so it is not possible to calculate a return on investment.
  • The time saved by creating custom applications to help me with my various daily tasks has been far greater than the time spent creating the applications.

Oracle WebLogic Suite

  • Low maintenance with good support equals a good ROI
  • Licensing and upgrade costs are significant but well worth the investment
