Start Breaking Into Multiple Projects From The Beginning And Others Build Behemoth Single Projects?

Jul 29, 2010

I've seen some teams that start breaking into multiple projects from the beginning and others build behemoth single projects. The large project teams say that one massive project is easier to maintain than multiple smaller projects.

Visual Studio :: Old Projects Not Showing Up In The Start Page Recent Projects List?

Jan 31, 2011

I just moved to a new PC and installed VS 2010. I copied all of my websites over from the old machine and now when I open the old websites on the new machine, they do not show up in my recent projects list on the start page. New websites that I make do show up there but the old ones do not. This is very inconvenient. Is there a way to make old projects that I open show up in the list?

This brings up another question. Is there a way to make a shortcut that will open VS2010 up with a website already loaded so that I don't have to go through the file open dialog every time?

Popularity: Web Site Projects Versus Web Application Projects?

Nov 1, 2010

I need to create a sample project (for educational purposes) and I'm faced with the choice between Web Site Projects or Web Application Projects. This feels similar to the choice between C# and VB. My question isn't about the differences between these 2 choices, but rather which is more popular (relevant, recognizable) to the general ASP.NET community.Has anyone seen any statistics in terms of adoption/usage of these 2 different project types? What project type should I use to reach the widest audience?Update: I created a poll on this subject -

Visual Studio :: Can Prevent Projects From Being Referenced By Other Projects

Jun 7, 2010

I have a multi-tiered application. I would like to publish the class libraries to UI developers to let them add to their web or windows projects to add all the functionality.

I would like to restrict access so only a certain project can be referenced. The reason is so that they do not refer to the data access layer directly and start making calls that would bypass the business logic built into the business tier.

UI->>Business Logic->>Data Access

So in other words, BL and DA are deployed as compiled assemblies. BL references DA. UI will reference BL, but I would like to strictly prevent any other project from referencing DA directly.

Segment C# Projects On Single Base?

Apr 4, 2011

I have a base project (with all its glory, dlls, resources etc) which is a CMS. I need to use this project as a base for othe custom bake projects. This base project is to be maintained and updated among all custom bake projects. I use subversion (Collabnet and Tortise SVN) I have two questions:

1 - Can I use subversion to share the base project among other projects What I mean here is can I "Checkout" the base project into another "Checked Out" project and have both update and commit seperatley. So, to paint a picture, let's say I am working on a custom project and I modify the core/base prject in some way (which I know will suit the others) can I then commit those changes and upon doing so when I update the base project in the other "Checked out" resources will it pull the changes? In short, I would like not to have to manually deploy updated core files whenever I make changes into each seperate project.

2 - If I create a custom file (let's say an webcontrol or aspx page etc) can I have it compile seperatley from the base project Another tricky one to explain. When I publish my web application it creates DLLs based on the namespaces of projects attached to it. So I may have a number of DLLs including the "Website's" namespace DLL, which could simply be website. I want to be able to make a seperate, custom, control which does not compile into those DLLs as the custom files should not rely on those DLLS to run. Is it as simple to set a seperate namespace for those files like CustomFiles.ProjectName for example? Think of the whole idea as adding modules to the .NET project, I don't want the module's code in any of the core DLLs but I do need for module to be able to access the core dlls.

(There is no need for the core project to access the module code as it should be one way only in theory, though I reckon it woould not be possible anyway without using JSON/SOAP or something like that, maybe I am wrong.) I want to create a pluggable environment much like that of Joomla/Wordpress as since PHP generally doesn't have to be compiled first I see this is the reason why all this is possible/easy. The idea is to allow pluggable themes, modules etc etc. (I haven't tried simply adding .NET themes after compile/publish but I am assuming this is possible anyway? OR does the compiler need to reference items in the files?) I posted a similar question with a little more detail for question 2 on Experts-Exchange. I don't want to post all that info here as it just will be too messy but it explains question 2 in greater detail.

MSBuild Failing To Build Referenced Projects When Upgrading To VS2010?

Dec 8, 2010

I have recently upgraded my .Net 3.5 solution containing some C# code projects and a web site project to VS2010 (from VS2008). It is building and running fine inside VS, but I get some problems when trying to build it on my server with MSBuild 4.0 via TeamCity. It seems like the projects that are referenced from the web site are not built. This was all working fine before I upgraded to VS2010, MSbuild 4.0 and Windows SDK 7.1.

Inside the msbuild script that I use to build from teamcity I have defined project references for the web site like this:


When I try to run the build script I get an error message saying that it could not find the dll file when trying to copy it from the bin folder of the referenced project into the bin folder of the web site. This is happening because the referenced projects are in fact never built at all (No bin folder exists in the project dir).

I am not very experienced with MSbuild, so I may have overlooked some important stuff. Is it not so that MSbuild will automatically try to build the referenced projects if no project output is existing?

C# - Visual Studio 2010: How To Enforce Build Order Of Projects In A Solution

Sep 6, 2010

I had no problem with this in Visual Studio 2008 but it seems that VS 2010 is having an issue, and I'm betting it's probably me.I have a solution with an ASP.NET Web Site Project and a few C# projects (BLL, DAL, Tests in NUnit). I have configured the build process for the test project to automatically run NUnit to run the tests. I would like to ensure that the BLL and DAL projects build before the test project so that the tests will run against the latest compiled version (yes, I know I could do this all in one project, but I'm choosing not to -- please bear with me :) )

So, I set the dependencies of the Test project to include the BLL, DAL, and Web Application projects, and the build order shows BLL, DAL, Web Application, and then Tests. However, I noticed that the BLL doesn't actually build when I build the Test project.Any idea what this could be or any option I might be missing to force the other projects to build when I build the Test project?

Web Forms :: Go From Single To Multi Projects Website?

Jan 8, 2011

I created a website with a single project solution. Each web page consists of C# code in a script block along with the markup. In order to make the website work with many languages, now realize that I will need to have the code for each page reside in separate code-behind files that can be combined with the markup in various languages. I assume this means that I will need a solution with a common project of code-behind files that is merged with a project of markup files for each language in order to create websites for host servers in the various countries. After I separate the code into code-behind files from the markup for each web page, I will need to know how to organize the solution for debugging and building each website and where to place each file.

Team Build Of Web Projects Generates App_web_xxxx.dll Files And TFSBuild.Proj Script

Jun 11, 2010

I have a web application that has some non-web projects as well. When using Web Deployment, a single assembly is generated for all the aspx.vb files. When using Team Build (TS 2008), a lot number App_Web_xxx.dll file(s) are generated instead of a single assembly. How can i solve this problem and change the TFSBuild.proj file so that it can generate a single Web Assembly instead of a lot number of assemblies.

I guess thats because the MERGE operation is not occurring like it used to happen for Web Deployment Project in my solution. How can i enable MERGE of App_web_*.dll files into a single Web.dll assembly file and delete the satellite assemblies? Here is my code from TFSBuild.proj file: (MY web project is in Release|.NET Config and all other projects within the solution are in Release|Any CPU)

<Target Name="AfterBuild">
<PropertyGroup Condition=" '$(Configuration)|$(Platform)' == 'Debug|.NET' ">
<PropertyGroup Condition=" '$(Configuration)|$(Platform)' == 'Release|.NET' ">

MVC: Multiple Projects Error?

Nov 23, 2010

So I've create a solution with multiple projects... one is for my website, the other for my data. I've added the reference and everything seems to be working just fine. Until now...

I recently created a model.edmx for a table and a stored procedure. When I trying and create a variable of that model, I get this error:

The type 'System.Data.Objects.ObjectContext' is defined in an assembly that is not referenced. You must add a reference to assembly 'System.Data.Entity, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089'.

I'm assuming this is because I'm using multiple projects.

MVC :: How To Do Multiple Projects With Common Views

Mar 9, 2011

I'm looking at doing a pair of MVC applications. One of the application will be a public website and the other for a POS kiosk. There will be some common views between the two applications. I'm considering having a single Visual Studio solution that will contain the two projects. But, I'm not sure how I can go about sharing the common views between the two projects, without just copy and pasting.

Is there way of doing it? Or should I be looking at using a different approach?

Splitting Up EDM To Reuse Functionality Across Multiple Projects?

Jan 30, 2011

I currently have an ASP .NET MVC / EF4 project that contains many pieces of autonomous functionality such as a blogging, events, contests, wiki, etc.

The entities used by each system are all mapped to my database through one giant EDM file.

This works well for the main site, but I also have a few personal sites where I want to reuse just the blogging functionality from the mains ite.

My biggest problem is that due to the mac daddy EDM file, my blog sites have to constantly have their database schemas updated to reflect changes made to areas of functionality that they don't use (i.e. changes to the events system).

The only other gotcha is that there are some entities (Users and Tags) that have relationships with entities from each area of functionality, making it hard to simply split each area of functionality off into its own EDM.

With all of this said, I'm trying to figure out the most efficient way to set this up.

Should I go down the road of splitting up the EDMs by each area (blogs, events, contests, wiki) and figuring out a way to maintain relationships for the User and Tag entities?

Or should I just perhaps be creating an EDM for each website that only maps the entities that it will actually need? The only problem with this is that my repository layer takes in a UnitOfWork/ObjectContext, and by creating new ObjectContexts for each site I'd have problems reusing my repository code.

Share Site Map Across Multiple Projects Or Sitemap With Sql Data Source

Feb 10, 2010

Now, I've refactored my code to have a data layer, business layer and the main project as the view layer. Next I'd like to split this big project smaller projects based on discrete functionality. As I understand it, one way to handle a shared masterpage is to copy it into each project, that's not the worst thing, it hasn't changed in over a year and if it does it's easy enough to propagate the changes out to the other projects.

I was also reading that I could create an assembly from my master page and share it that way. My masterpage.aspx has a reference to a sitemap, Unlike the masterpage I'd like to maintain only one site map if possible.

Workflow For Adding New Classes To Large Solution With Multiple Projects?

May 11, 2010

I am currently extending the NopCommerce solution for a client and have some general questions about workflow, since this is a relatively large solution for me (50+ projects).

I want to add some classes to the DAL, BLL, and so forth.

What would be the recommended process for this workflow? For example, I created a class in the DAL -> ran build. Then I created a test.aspx page in the main project which instantiates this class -> ran build; however, adding just one line of code causes the solution to rebuild all other projects such as payment modules, which makes the process tedious.

Am I approaching this in the correct manner? I have read about: creating a seperate solution with relevant projects; is this the recommended approach?

Custom Server Controls :: Accessing User Control Over Multiple Projects?

Dec 10, 2010

I have a piece of code that is just HTML. It was previously created as a user control. Within the application i'm working with there are two seperate websites that are interlinked to make one website. There is a documents section where users do not need to login and a data section where users need to login. The design was implemented long before I was hired. My problem is I want to use the code from the documents website with the data website but I can't seem to register the control. I only one this piece of code in one place so when it is updated it doesn't have to be in multiple places. I tried setting "src=http://website/doc/doc.ascx" but this errors out saying

<%@ Register Src="http://website/doc/doc.ascx" TagName="docs" TagPrefix="temp" %>

Parser Error Message: The file '/documents/http://website/doc/doc.ascx' does not exist.

It adds the directory as part of the src. How can I have it point to this location http://website/doc/doc.ascx ?

MVC :: Sharing A Folder Between Projects?

I have 2 projects, where they both can upload attachments into a directory.

The problem is how do you get the projects to be able to access each others attachments or even save these attachments in the same folder...

At the moment my ProjectA saves uploads into its "uploads" folder... But when you are running ProjectB it doesnt have the same uploads folder (if that makes sense)


ProjectA uploads folder: localhost:50732uploads
ProjectB uploads folder: localhost:50331uploads

I want these projects to be able to view attachments that the "other" project has uploaded.
