Basic differences between XBAP, WPF Standalone and Silverlight

Standalone WPF Application

WPF applications are installed on end user's machine.

Appear in Start Menu and Add/Remove Programs.

Applications can be installed via MSI or ClickOnce.

User can be offline and use the application. There is no need for Internet connection.

Newer versions of the application may not be automatically installed in user's machine.

WPF standalone applications can use WCF for communication.

Applications run in its own window as other windows applications.

XAML Browser Application(XBAP)

These type of applications are not installed in user's machine.

They do not appear in the in Start Menu or Add/Remove Programs.

Applications can be automatically deployed via ClickOnce.

Applications are hosted in the browser process.

Can be run only in IE and Firefox.

Newer versions are always installed automatically into the user's machine.

User must be online to use the application.

XBAP is Windows only. We can run the application in Windows operating system only.

XBAPs cannot use WCF.

The user machine should have .NET framework 3.0 components.

Silverlight

XBAP is IE and Firefox only. But Silverlight can run in any browser and platform.

Silverlight is used for creating rich UI web application.

User's machine don't need .NET framework.

Can be embedded in HTML markup and rendered in any browser using the silverlight plug in.

XABP has 99% features of WPF. But Silverlight is just a subset of WPF.

This page is substantially plagarized from MSDN content, and probably other sources. It is unprofessional to copy other people's content and claim it as your own without citing the sources.

Hello Ithyan,

XBAp apps run in partial trust mode. So they can't use WCF services in .NET framework 3.0. But framework 3.5 has some improvements over 3.0. So in framework 3.5 we can use WCF in partial trust mode for.

Thanks.
