CLR is .NET equivalent of Java Virtual Machine (JVM). It is the runtime that converts a MSIL code into the host machine language code, which is then executed appropriately. The CLR is the execution engine for .NET Framework applications. It provides a number of services, including:

  • Code management (loading and execution)
  • Application memory isolation
  • Verification of type safety
  • Conversion of IL to native code.
  • Access to metadata (enhanced type information)
  • Managing memory for managed objects
  • Enforcement of code access security
  • Exception handling, including cross-language exceptions
  • Interoperation between managed code, COM objects, and pre-existing DLL's (unmanaged code and data)
  • Automation of object layout
  • Support for developer services (profiling, debugging, and so on).
