Web Forms applications have several advantages over traditional client-server and Windows Forms applications. Web Forms applications do not require client-side installation, are easy to upgrade, have no distribution costs, and offer broad-based user access. Any user with a Web browser and an online connection can run Web Forms applications. Simple inquiry, browsing, or reporting applications are suitable candidates for Web Forms deployment.
Use the.NET Web Forms Application target wizard to create a Web Forms target and deploy the application from the .NET Web Forms Project painter. After you deploy, you can test the Web application by right-clicking on the project in the System Tree and selecting the Run menu item in the context menu. Your end users will access the deployed application through a browser with a URL that you provide.
