Deploying a Web Application (Not a Website)

When setting up the directory for a Web application for production (not a Website), do you place the .aspx files in the physical directory corresponding to the virtual directory and create a bin directory underneath that physical directory and then place the code behind assembly in the bin folder?

I am using XCopy to deploy my web application ( which includes .aspx files and a .dll)?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Yes. All .aspx files should be under the root of the website and the compiled dll files under the bin directory.
