Web Application Projects

The platform from which this project builds upon is Microsoft's Web Application Project Option for Visual Studio 2005. These projects can contain normal project items aswell as ASP.net items. These are compiled into a single assembly as they were in Visual Studio 2003.

Markup File Compilation and Merging

However, the markup files for UserControls, Pages and Master Pages are not compiled and thus the assembly cannot be distributed on its own as self contained library of the items within it. WAPL (Web Application Project Libraries) overcomes this by compiling these extra markup files and merging them with the original assembly compiled by Visual Studio. It does this using a small console application called the WAPL Tool.
