Migrating to the .NET platform has been under serious discussion ever since Microsoft launched its newest series of products under much hyped vision statements. Visual Basic.NET is one of the key products that enable application development under the new vision. However, VB.NET is not quite backward compatible with prior versions like Visual Basic version 6. This makes migration a serious issue. This article looks at possible reasons that one would choose to migrate, and outlines certain important issues to be considered when such a migration is attempted.

Visual Basic .NET is the result of a significant rebuild of Visual Basic for the Microsoft .NET Framework. There are a number of changes that make Visual Basic .NET easier to use, more powerful than Visual Basic 6.0, and give it the kind of access to system resources that in the past required the use of languages like C++. One of the most important additions is object inheritance. In Visual Basic .NET, all managed types derive from System.Object. An important new language feature is garbage collection, which is administered by the Common Language Runtime and provides better memory management. The universal type system allows for greater interoperability, also contributing to the enhanced power and flexibility found in Visual Basic .NET.

Before .NET came along, there were many distinct and fundamental differences between creating classic ASP Web applications and building desktop Microsoft® Windows® applications with Microsoft Visual Basic® 6.0. For starters, Visual Basic application user interfaces were designed with drag-and-drop GUI tools in Microsoft Visual Studio®, whereas the user interfaces for ASP Web applications were created by manually adding the HTML markup to generate the correct interface. Also, ASP Web pages contained script code with a mix of HTML markup and source code, whereas Visual Basic applications dealt with classes, modules, and other structured and object-oriented programming constructs.
