The Differences Between Web Application Projects and Web Site Projects

by - June 28, 2011

Web Application Projects
-Need to migrate large Visual Studio .NET 2003 applications
-Need to control names of output assemblies
-Need stand-alone classes to reference page and user control classes
-Need to build a Web application using multiple Web projects
-Need to add pre-build and post-build steps during compilation

Web Site Projects 
-Prefer single-page code model to code-behind model
-Prefer dynamic compilation and working on pages without building entire site on each page view (that is, save file and then simply refresh the page in the browser).
-Need to generate one assembly for each page
-Want to open and edit any directory as a Web project without creating a project file
