Microsoft Silverlight is a cross-browser, cross-platform implementation of the .NET Framework for building and delivering the next generation of media experiences and Rich Internet Applications (RIA) for the Web. Silverlight uses the EXtensible Application Markup Language (XAML) to ease UI development (e.g., controls, animations, graphics, layout, etc.) while using managed code or dynamic languages for application logic. In this paper, the authors discussed Silverlight Architecture, its features and how to run Silverlight application, the Silverlight framework to create applications for the Windows Phone and how the Silver Light grasped the market over Flex.
