What is an assembly in .NET?

Posted On: 16/11/2013 23:34:14
An assembly is a fundamental unit of any .NET application. It contains the code that is executed by CLR (common language runtime). I would like to limit the details to what is required to create and use an assembly. For more information about all nitty gritties of an assembly, please refer to MSDN documentation.

However, it is important to know a few details about assemblies before we delve into creating and using it.

  • An assembly contains name, version, types (classes and others) created in it and details about other assemblies it references.
  • An assembly may be either an executable file - .EXE or a dynamic link library - .DLL
