Use the Visual Studio .NET IDE and Grasshopper for Linux!

Use the Visual Studio .NET IDE and Grasshopper for Linux!

We all know and love the Microsoft® Visual Studio .NET® IDE, but did you know that you can use it to build server applications that run on Linux®? Discover how, with Visual MainWin® for J2EE™ from Mainsoft, Visual Studio users can run their applications natively on J2EE and Linux environments.

Figure 1:Your ASP.NET application running on Linux.



Take a look at Figure 1. It’s clearly an ASP.NET application, and it’s clearly running on Linux. That’s easy, you might think, you can build an ASP.NET application, run it on Microsoft Windows® under Internet Information Services (IIS) and browse to it using a browser such as Firefox on a Linux client. You’d be right, but look again. In the screen shot, your ASPX is running on localhost, the Linux box itself. With Visual MainWin for J2EE, also known as Grasshopper, you can do this easily, without changing your existing .NET code.

Therefore, you can say that Visual Studio .NET + Grasshopper = Visual Studio .NET for Linux!
