Microsoft had launched Visual Studio 2015 Preview. Let try to know what's new in this release and point you more details. One of the other large announcements today is that we will open source the full server-side .NET core stack from ASP.NET 5 to the CLR and BCL and this version will run on Linux and MacOS X as well as Windows.

Microsoft has announced to launch ASP.NET vNext, which includes MVC, Web API, and Web Pages frameworks will be merged into one framework, called MVC 6.

You can use the framework to create both UI (HTML) and web APIs.
ASP.NET Web API is a framework that allows us to build HTTP services that reach a broad range of clients, including browsers, mobile devices, and tablets. For creating RESTFul applications, ASP.NET Web API is an ideal platform on the .NET Framework.

ASP.NET Web API is a part of code ASP.NET platform and it can be used with ASP.NET MVC or any other types of application or it can be a standalone service application.Continue Reading>>
