Latest Version of Common Tags

The following tags are the latest stable versions of the most commonly used images. The complete set of tags is listed further down.

The .NET Framework Docker samples show various ways to use .NET Framework and Docker together. See Building Docker Images for .NET Framework Applications to learn more.

Watch dotnet/announcements for Docker-related .NET announcements.

Container sample: Run a simple application

Type the following command to run a sample console application with Docker:

docker run --rm microsoft/dotnet-framework-samples

Container sample: Run a web application

Type the following command to run a sample web application with Docker:

docker run -it --rm -p 8000:80 --name aspnet_sample microsoft/dotnet-framework-samples:aspnetapp

After the application starts, navigate to http://localhost:8000 in your web browser. You need to navigate to the application via IP address instead of localhost for earlier Windows versions, which is demonstrated in View the ASP.NET app in a running container on Windows.

Container sample: Run WCF service and client applications

Type the following command to run a sample WCF service application with Docker:

docker run -it --rm --name wcfservice_sample microsoft/dotnet-framework-samples:wcfservie

After the container starts, find the IP address of the container instance:

docker inspect --format="{{.NetworkSettings.Networks.nat.IPAddress}}" wcfservice_sample

Type the following Docker command to start a WCF client container, set environment variable HOST to the IP address of the wcfservice_sample container:

docker run --name wcfclient_sample --rm -it -e HOST= microsoft/dotnet-framework-samples:wcfclient

What is the .NET Framework?

The .NET Framework is a general purpose development platform maintained by Microsoft. It is the most popular way to build client and server applications for Windows and Windows Server. It is included with Windows, Windows Server and Windows Server Core. It includes server technologies such as ASP.NET Web Forms, ASP.NET MVC and Windows Communication Framework (WCF) applications, which you can run in Docker containers.

.NET has several capabilities that make development easier, including automatic memory management, (runtime) generic types, reflection, asynchrony, concurrency, and native interop. Millions of developers take advantage of these capabilities to efficiently build high-quality web and client applications.

You can use C#, F# and VB to write .NET Framework apps. C# is simple, powerful, type-safe, and object-oriented while retaining the expressiveness and elegance of C-style languages. F# is a multi-paradigm programming language, enabling both functional and object-oriented patterns and practices. VB is a rapid development programming language with the deepest integration between the language and Visual Studio, providing the fastest path to a working app.

The .NET Framework was first released by Microsoft in 2001. The latest version is .NET Framework 4.7.2.
