Problem of Dll-Hell
Before some time, if we install an application then dll of that application
get stored in the registry, then if we install other application that has same
name .dll that means previously installed .dll get overwrite by the same
name new .dll. Ok for newly installed application but previously installed
application cant get execute further. This is big problem in context of version
of same application. This is Dell-Hell problem.
Dll Hell refers to a set of problems caused when multiple applications attempt
to share a common component like a dynamic link library (DLL).The reason for
this issue was that the version information about the different components of an
application was not recorded by the system.
Solution of Dll-Hell Problem
This problem of dynamic link library (.dll) is resolved through Versioning.
Versioning is the technique to provide version to the .dll to prevent them
from replacement. GAC (Global assembly cache) is the separate memory like cache
it is used to remove load form operating system.
To add version in assembly we just write in Program :
We can do versioning only with shared assembly because to install .dll in GAC so
we need to have strong key name.
Authentication:verification, to be verify.
Authorization :Providing Role, to provide power ,step after
authentication in role.
To see the parts of an assembly:
open cmd prompt of Visual studio and write - ILDASM
ILDASM: is a tool to see the content (metadata) of Assembly.
