The project type under Cloud RRS feed

    Hi,

    I installed Update 2 to Visual Studio 2013 yesterday. Today, I noticed that there seems to be a new option under "Cloud" option. Now, I see "ASP.NET Web Application" too.

    I believe, we only had Cloud Service under "Cloud" option before this update. What is the difference between Cloud Service and ASP.NET Web Application under "Cloud"?

    Hi SamU,

    My VS version is VS2013 Ultimate Update 2. I just found the Mobile Service and Cloud Service templates in the Cloud tab when create a new project. What’s the detail version of your VS?

    As far as I know the cloud project (E.g. web application) is based on the cloud service. We could select the different web application template by select Cloud Service=>Add ASP.NET Web Role.

    More information, please refer to:

    # Getting Started with the Azure Tools for Visual Studio

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff687127.aspx

    On the other hand, we also could create a normal web application project, then convert to Cloud Service project. (Right click the web application=>Convert=>Convert to Windows Azure Cloud Service project.)

    To conclude, in my opinion, the ASP.NET Web Application project under Cloud tab is the same as Convert the web application to a cloud service project and the web application in the Cloud service.

    Thanks

    Best Regards

    Hi SamU,

    Please create a new project to check whether it is same as the normal web application.

    Base on the description of it, I think it is the same as normal application. (Maybe something wrong occurred when upgrade the VS.)

    Thanks

    Best Regards
