Signed Composition.dll and StructuredValues.dll

Nov 19, 2008 at 10:13 AM
Hi,

We are in the process of evaluating several plug in frameworks, MEF being one of them.
It seems that MEF might be the one we are going to use, but we ran into a problem.
Since most, if not all, of our assemblies are signed, we need the MEF assemblies to be signed too.
Is there an option to get these assemblies signed? I know that they will eventually be signed, as this framework is making its way to the .NET Framework.
But we might be able to wait that long. We need to use it now.

Thanks,
Abraham Shilon

The codeplex releases include source code so you can simply build and sign it yourself.  Is there a reason this won't work for you?

Thanks,

Thanks guys for your prompt response.

The MEF seems to be depended on the System.Reflection.StructuredValues.dll, which its source code is not available.
So, it appears that we either need its source code, or get it already signed from you guys.
Sure, we can decompile it, but we might need to manually fix it, as I believe it contains quite a few anonymous types and methods.
Can you please share your thought on this one?

Thanks a lot,

Hi Abrahama

We are about to do another drop of MEF that will no longer depend on Structured Values.  The current dependency is only a band-aid measure as we were ripping it out completely. That work is now done, so we can remove it entirely. This should address your issue I believe.

Hi,

I'm interested in signed (or source without demendency on StructuredValues.dll). When can we expect this, this is blocking for us ...

Can we meanwhile just get structuredvalues.dll signed ?

Thanks ...

Hi

We will be dropping source shortly that does not depend on SV.

We've just dropped MEF under a pure MS-PL license. The MS-LPL dependency has been removed.
