ASP .Net Provider Hacks


A few issues to keep in mind when converting a VS 2005 web project to a Web Application project.


ASP .Net automatically generates a strongly typed Profile class when using Profile Personalization (System.Web.Profiles). This does not happen when using WAP (Web application projects).

There is a free utility to generate the Profile class from the web.config


The default SqlProfilesProvider works by serializing all the profile properties into one column. However, as with all providers this can be changed.

http://www.asp.net/downloads/teamprojects/default…. is a download to a Table profile provider and stored procedure profile provider. These work out of the box, to a profiles table of your own choosing.
