Class Library in .NET
What is a Class Library in .NET?
Class library is the another major entity of the .NET Framework. This library
gives the program access to runtime environment. The class library consists of
lots of prewritten code that all the applications created in .NET aware languages
and Visual Studio .NET will use. The code for all the elements like forms, controls
and the rest in VB .NET applications actually comes from the class library.
Code in class libraries may be shared & reused. One of the core . NET libraries
is mscorlib.dll. .NET language compilers reference this library automatically as it
contains core types. A class library, contains types, that may be used by external
applications. A class library may be a DLL or an EXE. Note that the .NET class
libraries, even though have a same extension as the old COM Win32 binaries,
yet they are very different internally.
