Visual Web Developer 2010 Express offers a great set of features for deploying web applications seamlessly. One of the key features is the ability to publish your web application from VS 2010 to a remote hosted web server along with its dependencies like SQL Server database using “Web One Click Publish”. VS 2010 integrates Microsoft Web Deployment Tool (MsDeploy.exe) to provide a fast, reliable and cohesive way of deploying web applications.
