Abstract

This is one of the first comprehensive 64-bit .NET research to be completed in a British University. The objective is to investigate (1) the techniques to develop 64-bit applications; and (2) how 64-bit computing can be used for e-Learning and e-Science communities. This paper is focused on an emerging technology for e-Learning and e-Science communities -- a 64-bit .NET e-portal application, and its functionality, development and technical implementation are described. Currently, additional troubleshooting is required to make .NET Framework 1.1 working in stable ways on 64-bit Windows operating systems. After stabilizing .NET environment, the next step is the application development, which is a dynamic repository with functions such as registration, download, login-logout, product submissions, database storage and statistical reports. The technology is based on Visual Studio .NET 2003, .NET 1.1 Framework with Service Pack 1, SQL Server 2000 with Service Pack 4 and IIS Server 6.0 on the Windows Server 2003 Enterprise x64 platform with Service Pack 1. The 64-bit .NET e-portal integrates further with Java Web Services, and a demonstration described in this paper can show how different types of services can work in harmony. Furthermore, the interdisciplinary area between e-Learning and e-Science has been investigated and in the process of further integrations. As an example for such integration, the 64-bit .NET e-portal is also an illustration for (1) the methods of technical implementations and (2) cost-effectiveness; and these two issues are also among the current research interests in e-Learning. Finally, the new insights identified by this paper have also achieved the two objectives: (1) learning about emerging technology and (2) understanding how Web Services can complete jobs.
