The Microsoft .NET Framework is a software component that can be added to or is included with Microsoft Windows operating system. It provides a large body of pre-coded solutions to common program requirements, and manages the execution of programs written specifically for the framework.
The pre-coded solutions that form the framework's class library cover a large range of programming needs in areas including: user interface, data access, database connectivity, cryptography, web application development, numeric algorithms, and network communications. The functions of the class library are used by programmers who combine them with their own code to produce applications.
Web Service Enhancements (WSE) is a Visual Studio.Net and .Net Framework add-on created by Microsoft to support .Net development teams in the development of web services implementing protocols pertaining to WS-Specifications.
WSE version releases are triggered by changes in WS-Specifications and are independent of .Net Framework releases. The first two versions are compatible with .Net Framework 1.0/1.1 while the latest version can be deployed with .Net Framework 2.0 and Visual Studio 2005.
WSE 3.0 supports specifications such WS-Security 1.0/1.1, WS-Trust, WS-Secure Conversation, WS-Policy, WS-Addressing, WS-Reliable Messaging and MTOM, SOAP 1.1 and 1.2. It also includes capabilities to host web service outside IIS including console applications, windows services and forms and COM+ applications.
WSE Configuration Editor (WSE Settings 3.0 Tool) is a graphical user interface supported in Visual Studio 2005. It enables user to specify WSE settings such as security, routing, policy, token issuing, diagnostics and messaging rather than editing configuration file directly.
