What is Manifest?

Posted By :Ghanashyam Nayak     Posted Date :December 05, 2010    Points :15   Category :VB.Net 
Assembly metadata is stored in Manifest. Manifest contains all the metadata needed to do the
following things (See Figure Manifest View for more details):

-> Version of assembly
-> Security identity
-> Scope of the assembly
-> Resolve references to resources and classes.
-> The assembly manifest can be stored in either a PE file (an .exe or .dll) with
Microsoft intermediate language (MSIL) code or in a stand-alone PE file that
contains only assembly manifest information.

What is Assembly manifest? what all details the assembly manifest will contain?

  
Every assembly, whether static or dynamic, contains a collection of data that describes how the elements in the assembly relate to each other. The assembly manifest contains this assembly metadata. An assembly manifest contains all the metadata needed to specify the assembly's version requirements and security identity, and all metadata needed to define the scope of the assembly and resolve references to resources and classes. The assembly manifest can be stored in either a PE file (an .exe or .dll) with Microsoft intermediate language (MSIL) code or in a standalone PE file that contains only assembly manifest information.

It contains Assembly name, Version number, Culture, Strong name information, List of all files in the assembly, Type reference information, Information on referenced assemblies. (More...)

Difference between assembly manifest & metadata?

  
assembly manifest - An integral part of every assembly that renders the assembly self-describing. The assembly manifest contains the assembly's metadata. The manifest establishes the assembly identity, specifies the files that make up the assembly implementation, specifies the types and resources that make up the assembly, itemizes the compile-time dependencies on other assemblies, and specifies the set of permissions required for the assembly to run properly. This information is used at run time to resolve references, enforce version binding policy, and validate the integrity of loaded assemblies. The self-describing nature of assemblies also helps makes zero-impact install and XCOPY deployment feasible.

metadata - Information that describes every element managed by the common language runtime: an assembly, loadable file, type, method, and so on. This can include information required for debugging and garbage collection, as well as security attributes, marshaling data, extended class and member definitions, version binding, and other information required by the runtime.

Explain manifest & metadata.

  
Manifest is metadata about assemblies. Metadata is machine-readable information about a resource, or ""data about data." In .NET, metadata includes type definitions, version information, external assembly references, and other standardized information. (More...)

Explain manifest & metadata?

  
Manifest is metadata about assemblies. Metadata is machine-readable information about a resource, or ""data about data." In .NET, metadata includes type definitions, version information, external assembly references, and other standardized information.

Manifest: Manifest describes assembly itself. Assembly Name, version number, culture, strong name, list of all files, Type references, and referenced assemblies.

Metadata: Metadata describes contents in an assembly classes, interfaces, enums, structs, etc., and their containing namespaces, the name of each type, its visibility/scope, its base class, the nterfaces it implemented, its methods and their scope, and each method's parameters, type's properties, and so on.

What is Version Number in Assembly Manifest ?

  
A revision and build number in an assemblies is called Version Number.

There are Major and Minor Version number in an assembly. you can change this version number in assemblyinfo.cs file
usually version number looks like this in assemblyinfo.cs
1.0.*

The common language run time uses these numbers to enforce version policy. (More...)

An assembly manifest contains all the metadata needed to specify the assembly's version requirements and security identity, and all metadata needed to define the scope of the assembly and resolve references to resources and classes.
