What I would like to be able to do is keep all the commonly used dlls in a single place that all the web servers can access.  Is this easy to accomplish?  Anyone know of some links to useful articles on this? I tried a quick search on google but found nothing useful.

Not quite sure, but this might point you in the right direction....

As far as I know the answer is no... but, you may be able to work around it by running the application remotely, which may require some hoop jumping. DLLs need to be registered, so unless they are on the server and registered there, you'll have to try some remoting type tricks.

Hope that helps a bit.

It can be done as in .NET you no longer need to register DLL's.

There have been many, many posts made throughout the world...
This was one of them.

Okay thanks, I will look into remoting.

Looking around Visual Studio.NET I noticed something about adding 'Web References'.  It sounds like it might be a way of putting dll's on a web server so they can be referenced via http.  So I will also look into that.  Anyone here know anything about it?

That would be a web service.  IT basically allows a component to be made available through HTTP and can be called as per normal.

Try and get away from DLL's. They're not needed any more.

Check out: http://www.learnvisualstudio.net  Excellent site and you can learn a lot.

Cheers,
Andrew

Hmm, the only thing on that site that can be accessed free is a video about threading.  And even that had to be signed up for.

As for you getting away from dlls, what is used instead?  Are these web services not dlls?  It seems to me that it is good practise to keep code in one place rather than have multiple copies of it all over the place, so that all applications can be updated by a single change.

For free, you get a video each week, plus the daily tip which you can watch on the site. If you like these, and can part with a few bucks then you get ALL the videos he's ever made, which are excellent. The best method I've found to learn about .Net and VS.Net.

Here are some free sites that have heaps of information on how the framework operates:
http://www.asp.net
http://www.gotdotnet.com
http://aspnet.4guysfromrolla.com/
http://www.codeguru.com
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/nhp/Default.asp?contentid=28000519

You're right that keeping code 'componentised' is a good idea, its just that dll's have sort of been replaced by 'Assemblies' in .NET. No registration required, easily portable, and no versioning issues that we had with dll's (DLL HELL).  You can still use/create them as before if need be.

All they have to do is sit in a certain directory (GAC -> Global Assembly Cache) on the server and they are useable!

Hope this helps!

Cheers,
Andrew

Bingo!  Here's an article on what I was trying to say:

There's also auto-deployment for stand-alone apps:

(They explain it alot better than me!!)
