It is intended to determine if Microsoft's product, Visual Studio .Net, is currently being used in businesses and ifit has proven to improve certain business functions. As such, it is expected to determine ifVS.Net has provided increased value added functionality when compared to Java. Quantifying the actual yield from the usage ofVS.Net in businesses was a goal. Utilizing an online survey made in VS.Net, data was gathered and analyzed. After analyzing the data, it was found that Java was the best with regards to scalability, integration, and compatibility, while VS.Net shortened development times and increased worker productivity. In the end, businesses must decide what their business needs are and how the two packages can complement those needs.
