I'm new to SilverLight and am evaluting a set of SL tools from a company called: Telerik.

There's a file located in the root project with an ASHX file extenstion. Could someone please tell me the purpose of this file extension?

Thanks,

.ashx files are similar to aspx files but they give little performance over aspx files. .ashx files doesn't have the same page life cycle as of aspx files requests. Because of this we have gain better performance over aspx files.
