Determining dependencies for referenced assemblies

Determining dependencies for referenced assemblies

Postby inspectorDev » Fri 05 Feb 2016 15:55

Hello - I have referenced the following assemblies in my .NET console application to perform data access:
1. Devart.Data.Oracle.dll
2. Devart.Data.dll

I am deploying my application to a fresh dev server with nothing on it, and I need to gather environmental requirements for my application. I prefer to have all my assemblies in my bin/release folder and not use the GAC.
1. So my question is: will I be ok if I copy just these two dlls, or do these two dlls have other dependencies that I need to copy as well? If so, which ones?

Note - my local dev machine has several devart assemblies in the GAC. I don't know how devart was installed. I inherited this machine from a dev now gone. But again, I only want what is required and I want those required assemblies in my bin/release folder and not in GAC.

Here are the devart assemblies in my local dev's GAC:
Devart.Data
Devart.Data.Design
Devart.Data.Linq
Devart.Data.Linq.Web
Devart.Data.Linq.Web.DynamicData
Devart.Data.Oracle
Devart.Data.Oracle.Entity
Devart.Data.Oracle.Linq
Devart.Data.Oracle.ReportingServices
Devart.Data.Oracle.ReportingServices
Devart.Data.Oracle.Web
Devart.SSIS.Oracle


Last question -
2. Typically how does Devart get installed on a dev's machine?

1.1. The list of Devart.* assemblies depends on the functionality of dotConnect for Oracle you use. For more information, refer to http://www.devart.com/dotconnect/oracle/docs/?deployment.html.
1.2. Additionally, you should add the license resource to your application: https://www.devart.com/dotconnect/oracle/docs/?licensing.html. dotConnect for Oracle includes License Wizard (Tools > Oracle > Oracle Information), in most cases its usage is enough to configure .NET component licensing.

2. You mean the developement workstation, don't you? In this case you should run installation of the licensed version of dotConnect for Oracle.

Actually, I mean both a dev's machine and a new test/production server. How do we install the devart libraries on a new server to support applications that will be using those dlls? Is there a typical install application or what? It seems nowadays everyone uses lots of 3rd party stuff, so there must be an accepted/standard way to get all these libraries on a production machine's GAC.

Thanks,

Return to dotConnect for Oracle
