.NET Deployment questions
What do you know about .NET assemblies? Assemblies are the smallest units of versioning and deployment in the .NET application. Assemblies are also the building blocks for programs such as Web services, Windows services, serviced components, and .NET remoting applications.
What’s the difference between private and shared assembly? Private assembly is used inside an application only and does not have to be identified by a strong name. Shared assembly can be used by multiple applications and has to have a strong name.
What’s a strong name? A strong name includes the name of the assembly, version number, culture identity, and a public key token.
How can you tell the application to look for assemblies at the locations other than its own install? Use the
directive in the XML .config file for a given application.
