Nikhil and myself took this discussion offline, and it is clear that what he would like to is to run an ASP.NET Classic application under a modern .NET Core engine.

I have written up a description of what needs to be done to achieve this, in case someone is interested in this effort:

Mono and .NET core serve different purposes, so they will continue to be developed together.

Mono’s main use these days is for mobile applications (Android and iOS) as well as providing the .NET Desktop API surface, which is used by existing applications, among those MonoDevelop/Visual Studio for Mac.

.NET core is optimized for high performance web workloads, and server tasks, and will continue to evolve in that direction.

For the last couple of years we have had an effort to reduce duplication code, so improvements into one flow into the other, it has been going great and will continue to advance.

Hi all,

Am just curious to know what's the future of mono framework.are we geting in actively contribution in mono.

Questions come into my mind when I have read somewhere that .net core would eventually replace mono framework.

If that's the case in near future...what would migration plan from mono to .net core?
