Do you avoid using Website Projects?

Last updated by Brook Jeynes [SSW] 5 months ago.See history

If you're creating new web apps in ASP.NET 2.0, do you still use  Website projects ? We strongly recommend using the new  Web Application projects .

What's the difference between the two? There is a detailed comparison here, but to summarize:

  • Website projects  have no project file and it creates multiples assemblies. (This result in a lot of annoying scenarios.)
  • Web Application projects  have a physical project file and along with all other standalone classes within the project are compiled into a single assembly.

Please see our kb - How to upgrade VS 2005 website Projects to be VS 2005 Web Application Projects? to do the upgrade.
