Does a WebPart assembly have to be GAC deployed? RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I create a web part for SharePoint (the .webpart file) does the class that is referenced need to be in the GAC of the server?

    The reason I ask is that I was intending to use a third-party component in my web part which turns out to not be signed, which means that I cannot sign mine.

  • WebPart assemblies can be deployed both to GAC or to the bin directory of a Web Application.
