various.net open source projects contribute to the.net platform ecosystem. the project types and tools available to you in visual studio depend on the components that are installed in your installation of visual studio. to learn more about.net project types and tools in visual studio, see the.net project types and tools page.
on windows, only the.net platform and.net core runtime components are installed with visual studio. on macos, only the.net core runtime is installed with visual studio. on other platforms, both the.net platform and runtime components are available for use with visual studio.
the.net platform component contains the framework itself, any pre-requisite runtimes, tools, test frameworks, and runtime components that you add to the product. for.net core, the.net core runtime includes the coreclr platform and the corefx platform. note that the coreclr is a superset of the.net framework sdk, and that the corefx platform is a superset of the desktop.net platform sdk.
you can install or remove the.net framework or.net core runtime components at any time. if you remove the runtime component for any previous version, visual studio validates that you have.net core 2.1 or later installed first.
in order to support the windows-only line of.net core products (including asp.net core and asp.net mvc core), you’ll need the windows desktop.net sdk. it includes the.net 4.7.2 framework and.net core 2.0 sdk.
the sdk and all.net framework components are installed to the c:\program files (x86)\microsoft sdks\ and c:\program files\microsoft sdks\ folders, depending on your visual studio install root. you should not remove any installed.net framework components.
However, as you work in Java Studio Enterprise, you don’t have to worry about your private information being shared with the service where you are working. In addition, multiple people can collaborate, and each can view, edit, and comment on the same document, or document fragment at once. To share the document, you can either create a new folder for it and share that folder with others or give a URL to the document.
The Visual Studio IDE offers other collaborative tools as well. For example, you can review, check, and approve documents in a document library directly in the IDE. You can also send a document directly to the IBM Lotus Notes client.
To learn how to configure the remote communication features in Sun Java Studio Enterprise 8, see the paper, Connecting to Collaboration Server, in the section, Configuring Java Studio Enterprise 8 Remote Communications.
Another feature of Java Studio Enterprise 8 is that you can use rich text editing. Thus, you can provide comments, markup, and other enhancements to source code and class-library documentation files.
If you’re familiar with the rich-text editor functionality in the previous version of Visual Studio, you’ll be happy with the improvements in the Visual Studio IDE in Sun Java Studio Enterprise 8. The toolbar is now just as rich as in previous versions of the IDE and also includes a Project menu. Just below the Project menu is a command, New Project, to generate a basic project for your source code.
