Each of the applications developed in the first eight chapters are along the lines of traditional “stand-alone” applications, given that all programming logic is contained within a single *.exe. One major aspect of .NET is the notion of binary reuse. Like COM, .NET provides the ability to access types located in external binaries in a language-independent manner. However, the .NET platform provides far greater language integration than classic COM. For example, the .NET platform supports cross-language inheritance (e.g., a Visual Basic .NET class deriving from a C# class). To understand how this is achieved requires a deeper understanding of assemblies.
