Can c++ be used to create a powerful web app?
I'm just off the wikipedia site, reading on the concept of CLI, Bytecode, JIT, Managed C++, etc. It jdawns on me that Microsoft's .NET Framework( still a key part of VS 2005)makes C++ no longer a precompiled Lan tool anymore! The C++ code is precompiled by .NET engine to bytecode, which is transmitted to the user, then translated into machine code by .NET virtual machine on the users's computer, just before runtime. (Just In Time-- JIT)
This is exactly like what Java does. So .NET Framework makes C++ like Java?
Here is my question, if .NET Framework makes C++ portable now, why bother with C#? as web tool creating ADO.NET or ASP.NET applycations?
Can I stay with C++ to creat a powerful ASP.Net apps?
