[.NET Internals 10] Application execution model

Knowing the idea and main benefits of JIT compilation from the previous post, we’ll now see how it fits into .NET applications execution model.

By execution model I mean a process of having a .NET Framework application actually executed on the machine (CPU), starting from having its source code written. It contains all steps and actions necessary to happen in order to transform source code (like C#) into machine (assembly) code and execute it.
