    Application and Assembly


    Hi.

    What is the difference between an application and an Assembly? Some help
    topics say that some kinds of variables can be seen inside an application
    and an assembly, others only in an application etc. I can't see the difference.

    Thanks

    Re: Application and Assembly

    Robert,

    An Application consists of one or more Assemblies. An Assembly consists of
    one or more EXE and DLLs that have been put into a package and installed on
    your computer. An Application will create instances of those classes as it
    runs. With regard to difference between which variables can and can't be
    shared, I'll have to pass on that one. What variables are you specifially
    referring to? Off the top of my head, maybe you are referring to
    Applications that run in the same AppDomain. Thus, they can share data
    between each other using the AppDomain class and this wouldn't apply to the
    Assemblies.

    I hope this helps.

    An Assembly is a way packaging multiple files so that an Application can
    run. Thus, and Application is just one of the files in an Assembly.
