This is a stable version which we have finished an outsourcing project based on it to a customer successfully in Aug 2009. There are rich common library, extension model, plaltform and rapid web UI infrastructure in this version. The API documentation is not prepared in this release because we're still looking for a free and fit solution to create it.
BTW, we don't publish the private strong name key file of "RapidWebDev.public.snk". The private snk is the evidence that the RapidWebDev assemblies in your machine are officially released by us.Here are some tips before you first launch RapidWebDev
- RapidWebDev.public.snk is a public strong name key which referenced by RapidWebDev projects in source in delay-sign. We don't suggest you develop business solutions based on "source" unless you replace "RapidWebDev.public.snk" with your own snk file in all projects. But in this way you may have some problems on using the future official releases which the assemblies are signed with the private snk of "RapidWebDev.public.snk". When you intend to run web application or tests in "source", you should first compile the project "Tests" and ensure "SN.Vr.bat" is copied into the directory "Debug/Release" and executed successfully. This bat file allows you to execute assemblies without signing.
- In "release" package, we have signed RapidWebDev assemblies in "Library" with private strong name key file already and remove the snk file reference from the web project. You can add your own strong name file into the web project as needed.
- Copy xml schema files in xml schema package to "%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Xml\Schemas" so that you can get visual studio intelligence when you're editing the xml configurations.
