I am rewriting Visual Basic code from 1.1(VS2003) to 4.0(vs2010) framework.
I have a situation where a single dll is referenced by 12 different slns.
Its kind of "all over the board" on the dll functions that are used.
What has happenned is that there was a tendancy for programmers to just make code updates for the specific sln instead of updating the shared dll and implementing it for all 12 slns.
so for the rewrite, I would like this to work such that is isn't so difficult to apply changes to the shared dll. (like if someone had to change the shared dll, but it only really affects 1 sln....how could that tweek be made such that all 12 slns would need to bring in the new dll as well).
I am kind of weak in the architecture arena, so I was looking for someone to give me advice on this. I hope this makes sense! Thank you!
