Customising Windows Application
Posted on 2014-02-20
I have a windows application using MS SQL Server & windows clients written in vb.net. I need to heavily customise parts of it for a second customer which means we will have a vanilla flavour for one customer while the second will use some parts of the vanilla flavour and some parts will be customised to their requirements.
We think this is likely to be the pattern in the future where each new user needs a degree of customisation. I am not sure how to structure the project - I don't want two separate applications.
I am thinking of putting each user's bespoke code in a dll and keeping the vanilla code in the original exe but not having done this before I would like to know if this would work or if there is a better way.
Look forward to hearing from you all.
