Visual Studio 2005 and ASP.NET 2.0

With ASP.NET 2.0, Visual Studio 2005 has undergone some major enhancements and now provides a far superior environment for developing Web applications than previous versions. While the design environment is very familiar, the feature set has improved, making it a premier Web development tool.

Key design features for Visual Studio 2005 include the following:

  • Traditional inline coding approach, plus a new code-behind model
  • Support for all managed languages
  • Ability to edit any file anywhere (FTP, File System, Front Page Server Extensions, and so on)
  • Support for data controls, drag and drop, and database access, with a rich design surface
  • Support for visual inheritance through master pages
  • No project files, allowing projects to be manipulated outside of the tool
  • Integrated Web Site Administration Tool
  • IntelliSense included
  • Support for internationalization
  • Debugging support
  • No "build" step—ability to compile on first run


This feature set is really a combination of features from Visual Studio .NET and Web Matrix. As well as Visual Studio 2005 there is a stand-alone development tool targeted specifically at Web developers: Visual Web Developer Express Edition.
