Web Application Projects with Web Deployment Projects...

Hi there,

 Does anyone have any experience in using the Web Deployment Project pieces to deploy Web Application style projects (rather than the web site projects model)?

We have a rather larger eCommerce site that uses WAP model (it was originally a website model, but we ran into so many problems with compile times, temp .dll file lockups at compile etc that we moved it to WAP a long time ago).

What's strange is that the project compiles fine normally when we're not using the Web Deployment Project and everything is fine. However, the second we hook the WDP stuff up, we're getting allsorts of compile errors that we shouldn't be getting including:

'Error 212 Circular file references are not allowed. /www_4imprint_com_WAP.csproj/_ControlsLibrary/_UserControls/Products/Common/ProdList.ascx'
'Error 218 The virtual path '/_ControlsLibrary/_UserControls/Common/Search/ucQuikSearch.ascx' maps to another application, which is not allowed. /www_4imprint_com_WAP.csproj/Admin/_ControlsLibrary/_Common/ucHeaderAdmin.ascx'

We're thinking that the WDP stuff is under the false impression that our eCommerce site is a Web Site project and not a Web Application project. These are exactly the types of errors you get with web site model sites, but we shouldn't be getting them in our web application project model app. All our controls, classes etc are correctly namespaced and once again, the project always compiles fine when WDP isn't part of the equation.

We've tried messing around with the 'output assemblies' settings in the Deployment Project options - setting single assembly, assembly per folder and assemblies for each page, but the darned thing never works properly.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to get this all working with Web Application Project apps? Most of the articles online I've found don't specifically deal with WAP.

One thing you might try is to use the command line version of the tools to see if they provide any more information. Web Deployment Project uses aspnet_compiler and aspnet_merge. Both tools should work with both WAP and Web sites.


aspnet_compiler -f -c -d -v MySite -p MySite output_folder

aspnet_merge -errorstack -o MySite_deploy output_folder

You mentioned that the error only appears after adding WDP, so the error might be from aspnet_merge. The -errorstack flag would provide a stack trace which might help identify where the failure came from.



If you get the answer to your question, please mark it as the answer.

Error when Deploying and Signing Web Application project with Web Deployment project
I have a Web Application project that needs to be deployed and signed using Web Deployment projects. When I delete the global.ascx file I'm able to do the deployment and sign the output assembly. The error I'm getting without signing the assemblies is "An error occurred when merging assemblies: ILMerge.Merge: The target assembly 'HelloWorld' lists itself as an external reference.” .  Global.ascx or .asax?

Web Deployment Project deploying files not included by Web Application Project
Recently my boss asked me to find a way to share a web site project between 2 separate projects which will only share a subset of the files in the folder.  I created 2 web applications projects in the folder and eliminated the web site project.  I discovered when I publish the web application projects, that it wasn't compiling the .as*x pages, so I looked into web deployment projects.  The problem I'm having with web deployment projects is that when I build them from the solution configuration, it copies all the files in the web project to the deployment folder and I c...

Web Deployment Project and Web Application Project
 Hi! Maybe I have missed something, but shouldn't there be possible to do a web deployment project of a web application project? I have followed this guide http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa479568.aspx, but  I can't get it to work without building the web application project first. With TFSBuild it fails even if I build the web application first. The error looks like this: C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\aspnet_compiler.exe -v /WebDepWeb.csproj -p <MySourceFolder>\WebDepWeb -f <MySourceFolder>\WebDepBuild\Binaries\Release\_PublishedWebsi...

Benefits of creating a Web Deployment project for a Setup project for a website vs a Web Setup project
I'm creating an installer for a website.The only thing I require as input from the user (in Custom Actions) is settings for the web.config. My initial approach was to create a Deployment project from my web project ans use this as input to the Setup project.Couldn't I use a Web Setup project instead of a Web Deployment + Setup project to do the same thing?Issues I have found with the Web Deployment is that I cannot edit it's contents at installation time, I'm taking user input at installation time to write to the web.config that the Installer uses but of course this file is embedded in the W...

Web Application Projects & Web Deployment Projects
What is the difference between both? I can't find the answer! thanks Hi, A Web Application Project (WAP) is simply another project model aprt from the default Website Model in VS 2005.

Web Deployment Project & Web Application Project
Hi.It seems as if you don't have a "traditional" web project (i.e. not a Web Application Project) in your solution, the "Add Web Deployment Project..." option is  not available for a Web Application Project. However, once you add a "non-Web-Application-Project-web-project", the option appears.Thought I'd share if anyone else runs into the same issue. (Or maybe it's just my environment) Daniel Brüntesonhttp://www.numlock.se Hi Daniel, Do you have the lastest version of Web Application Projects?  I have the February release installed (http://msdn.microsoft.com/asp.net/reference/i...
