The opening text in Ch 17 cautions that the profile feature doesn't work in Web Application
Projects. That raises a few questions/requests for confirmation:
1 - Please confirm that the Provider features of Membership, Role Manager and Session State (not sure what this is yet) function the same in Application Projects as they do in Website Projects.
2 - Is there an easy explanation why Profile doesn't work in Application Projects?
3 - Will we learn in the Professional ASP.NET 4.5 : in C# and VB
book how to perform the profile task in an Application Project?
4 - It is clear from the progress of the exercises in this book that the Website Project was far easier to work with for this purpose. But it seems if we want to have a more controlled and automatic process for managing a website we will need to use the Application Project. Do you agree with this or have some other considerations to add regarding the decision to use Application versus Website Projects?
