Satellite Assemlies, Hub & Spoke method. RRS feed

  • Question

  • User1058324349 posted

    Of course this is about Globalization but I didn't found any other suitable page.
    There are two ways to pack your satellite assemblies:

    1) The simple one, which is to put all resources in the application folder like: strings.resx, strings.fa.resx and so on.

    2) You put all resources for specific culture in a .dll file using Assembly Linker(AL.exe) tool.

    I wonder which one is called "Hub & Spoke" method and also when we convert our resource to .dll, is it possible for others to access and change our .dll?
    Please tell me if you know any other names for these two methods and the differences.

    Not sure which is 'hub & spoke', sounds more like how I'd describe the DLL version because you can store you common resources in your component (the hub?) and the other language resource in the satellite assemblies (spoke?). As to your Q. about changing the DLL, you can let others change them if you want...i.e providing they have the tools and you're security model allows them, e.g. strong naming policy.
