What is the difference between toolkit vs Library vs framework?

The toolkit is the easiest. It's just a bunch of methods, classes that can be use. The library vs the framework question I make difference by the way to use them. I read somewhere the perfect answer a long time ago. The framework calls your code, but on the other hand your code calls the library. Share. [3]

Just so, What is the difference between a library and a toolkit? It generally lacks any purpose or intent of its own, and is intended to be used by (consumed) and integrated with client code to assist client code in executing its tasks. Toolkit Historically, a toolkit is a more focused library, with a defined and specific purpose. [3]

In this regard, What is the difference between a library and a framework? The most important difference, and in fact the definingdifference between a library and a framework is Inversion of Control. What does this mean? Well, it means that when you call a library, youare in control. But with a framework, the control is inverted: the frameworkcalls you. [3]

Also, What is the difference between Kit and framework? Framework: While not the prevalent notion, a framework can be viewed as a kit. It also has a library (or a collection of libraries that work together) that provides a specific coding structure & pattern (thus the word, framework ). (e.g. Spring Framework) [4]

Just so, Is the NET Framework a toolkit or a framework? The .Net Framework is mostly a toolkit, because it's composed of the FCL which is a library, and the CLR, which is a virtual machine. So you would consider it a toolkit to C# development on Windows. [3]
