2 small questions
 
Relating to ASP.NET:

Could someone please explain what:

a) An Assembly is?

b) What is a .DLL


Imar July 9th, 2008 03:09 PM

Google can:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.NET_assembly
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hk5f40ct(VS.71).aspx

An assembly is a collection of types and resources that are built to work together and form a logical unit of functionality.

For all practical purposes, a DLL *is* an assembly. The reverse is not always true as .exe files are assemblies as well (in the .NET world, that is).

Cheers,

Imar
