I have a web part deployment and development question. Probably newbie questions..
For web parts which will only be used in certain web applications, I can definitely see creating custom CAS policies etc.. and deploying the dll only to the Bin of the Web Application, but what is the best practice for deploying a Farm wide web part that
everyone will use?
I assume it goes in the GAC, and additionally, are there any best practices as far as the namespaces for web parts when they are going into the GAC?
For example, if I go into the Assembly folder and look at all the assemblies in the GAC, is it "okay" to have various globally deployed web part assemblies in there? Like, "MyCustomWebPart" sitting in there with the other sharepoint assemblies?
Seems messy to me, but if these are "one-off" web parts that won't have a bunch of classes within a single namespace, it seems like what needs to be done.
Hopefully that was clear enough!
