CODE Framework Service Features for .NET Core RTM

Houston, TX – June 20, 2019… EPS Software Corp., CODE, and Markus Egger Inc., are proud to announce the general availability of CODE Framework Services Features for .NET Core.

We are proud to announce the first public release of CODE Framework’s .NET Core Service Components. This set of components allows developers to create and consume (Micro) Services in .NET Core. These features provide a continuation of CODE Framework’s Service Features that have now been maintained for well over a decade (and closer to two decades, when counting continued support for CODE Framework’s predecessor product). Using these new features, existing services, as well as new services, can be deployed on .NET Core, and as such, include Windows and Linux deployment targets. This set of features also explicitly supports containerization, Docker, and related features, such as Kubernetes.

All CODE Framework Services Features released as part of this major release, either target .NET Standard, or .NET Core. Services created using these new features are mainly meant to be used in .NET Core environments, but they are also backwards compatible with the full .NET Framework, allowing for maximum code reuse.

All services created in this way are syntax compatible to services created with previous versions of CODE Framework, thus providing unprecedented backwards compatibility and longevity for Services and Micro Services. With CODE Framework’s recently added support for Milos Solution Platform components (the predecessor product of CODE Framework), which brings many Milos components to the world of .NET Core and .NET Standard, service code going back 20 years and the early days of “.NET 1.0 Web Services” can still be used and maintained on a modern platform.

CODE Framework Service features are available as Open Source software under the MIT license. Source code can be found on GitHub ( The actual components are provided as NuGet packages. Both source code and NuGet packages are free of charge.
