Difference Between Web Application Projects and Web Deployment Projects
....what's the difference? Web App Projects sounds like everythng I want, but what does it do that Web Deployment doesn't?
First of all, here are two highly recommended blog posts that you may want to read about Web Application Projects and Web Deployment Projects.
In a nutshell, a web deployment project is associated with a web site project and is a step that you may want to take before your deploy your application. You can do post processing on ...Problem when deploying Web Application project over VS2005 Web Site project
Hi, we ran into this issue yesterday evening when we were trying to deploy new code on production box. It was running previous version of our app that was VS 2005 Web Site project, but the new version was migrated into Web App project. New build was tested on sandbox and even on the same production machine (but under different, non public web site configured there) and was working fine. However, when we deployed on production web site, we got this error:Compiler Error Message: CS0246: The type or namespace name 'ProfileCommon' could not be found (are you missing a using directi...Web Deployment Project and Web Application Project
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:

I went to http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/asp.net/aa336619.aspx and downloaded the web deployment project. Installed it and tried to create a deployment project for my web application project. However, I do not get the menu item. I've tried this with existing WAP's, new WAP's, but no luck. I have VS 2005 team developer, with SP1 and Team Explorer installed.I've tried the steps mentioned through out this post: http://forums.asp.net/thread/1502324.aspx but still have no luck in getting the menu item.Any help would be appreciatedWayne...Web Application Projects with Web Deployment Projects...
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'r...Web Deployment Project with Web Application Project
I currently have a working Solution that contains 3 VB class library projects and one Web Application Project and it is working fine. I would like to use the web.config replacement functionality from the Web Deployment Projects.
I add a Web Deployment project and keep the defaults, and the build is broken. Whenever I try to build, I get the following error:
error ASPPARSE: Could not load type 'MyWebApp.Page1'.
Done building project "MyWebApp.vbproj_deploy.wdproj" -- FAILED.
I have searched on this and found some information, but it doesn't seem to help. I...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...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?
The usual cause of a signing error is when a reference is not signed. Is the global.asax.cs or .vb marked as conte...Web Deployment Project failing for Web Application Project
I have a solution containing 40+ projects including a Web Application Project and Web Deployment Project. When I compile the solution excluding the WDP, it is successful. When compiling including the WDP, it fails. The failures are odd because they include compile time errors with the user controls code-behind complaining ala:

Hi - can anyone please explain, in simple terms, what the difference is between a Web Site Project, and a Web Application Project?
I've read Scotts blog at http://webproject.scottgu.com/VisualBasic/Migration/Migration.aspx - but am none the wiser.
I'm about to upgrade from VS2003 to VS2005 - and don't want to waste a lot of time upgrading existing 2003 web apps to 2005 web site projects, if web application projects are more appropriate.
Thanks for any guidance,
Hi.I have exactly the same question, and can't find any information about it.Can anyone help us?Sérgio

What is the difference between both? I can't find the answer!
A Web Application Project (WAP) is simply another project model aprt from the default Website Model in VS 2005. WAP is similar to VS 2003 web project model.
Whereas a Web Deployment Project(WDP) is used to deploy a web project and provides flexiblity while deployment. See this link for details:

Hi there,i have been reading about the new Web application project (addon) for Visual Studio 2005, all sounds really nice but i just can't put my finger on it...Whats the differences really? And why is one better than the other?I also read about the Visual studio 2005 Web deployment projects, which from what i can gather allows us to deploy our code like back in 2003 i..e. with a BIN directory and dll which is the compiled code behind stuff..are these in anyway linked together?Thanks in advacne for any info..Best rregardsIan

http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/arch...How to use web deployment projects with multiple web application projects.
I followed the guide on this page http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307467 "How To Create an ASP.NET Application from Multiple Projects for Team Development" and I now have my main app at the root of the application and I have all of the sub applications as sub directories of the root application. It all works great when I do a normal debug build or a normal publish.
The problem is that I have nested sitemaps, nested master pages, and of course, nested web.config files. Basically the root app has a master page, sitemap, and web.config file and each child app ...
