  1. ASP.Net web forms have a code behind file which contains all event handling code.
  2. ASP.Net web forms inherit the class written in code behind.
  3. ASP.Net web forms use full fledged programming language
  4. ASP.Net web applications are configurable (web.config)
  5. ASP.Net webforms can use custom controls through the @ register directive
  6. ASP.Net web forms have ADO.Net which supports XML integration and integration of data from two or more data sources
  7. Variety of compilers and tools available including the Visual studio.Net.
  8. Completely Object Oriented.
  9. Complete session and application state management.
