MEF for deploying ASP.NET?

May 6, 2010 at 5:33 PM
I just recently happened upon the MEF. It sounds like such a great idea, but I'm trying to understand how I could use it in ASP.NET. Our application uses modules for different portions of the site, let's say one for Shipping and another for Receiving in a warehouse. Let's say the Shipping is already installed. Once the Receiving module is finished, I just need to copy the DLL into a directory and the menus would get updated, the pages would all be there, etc? Thanks, EJ

Are you using webforms or asp.net mvc?

We're using WebForms.

This is something doable with MEF, but we dont provide any specific kind of integration out-of-the-box. A good starting point may be the sample I've put it here:
