Where did the Application Block Software Factory go?


As I mentioned in the announcement of the Enterprise Library 4, two pieces were removed from the release: Application Block Software Factory and Strong-Naming Guidance Package. These are made available as a separate download on EntLibContrib. Here’s the direct link. Both require GAX.

  1. I cannot find a EL4.0 edition of the Application Block Software Factory on the EntLibContrib site on CodePlex.

    Also, what you say about "requires GAX" conflicts with what Tom Hollander says on his blog:

    "The Application Block Software Factory and the Strong Naming Guidance Package are not included in this release but are available as a separate download. Thus, there is no longer a dependency on Guidance Automation Extensions (GAX). "

    Do I need the GAX or not?
