.NET Useful Tools & Utilities

Peace be upon you,

I thought of sharing these useful & free .Net utilities:

.NET Productivity Suite
DevForce Express is a full featured framework that accelerates building complex, data intensive, .NET applications. Key features include VS2005 integration, RAD tools, advanced databinding, caching, security, and more.

ILMerge is a utility for merging multiple .NET assemblies into a single .NET assembly. It works on executables and dlls alike. It comes with several options for controlling the processing and format of the output, see the accompanying documentation for details.

LibCheck allows you to compare two versions of an assembly, and determine the differences. The tool reports the differences as a combination of ‘removed’ and ‘added’ APIs. The tool is limited to looking only at APIs (i.e, it can’t check for behavioral changes), and only compares public differences, or changes which are deemed to be ‘breaking’. The tool can be used to quickly determine what has changed between one version of your assembly and another, and can help ensure that you won’t introduce any breaking changes to clients of your assembly. Instructions and intended use of the tool are described in the ‘libcheck tool specification’ document with the zip file.

CLR Profiler
The CLR Profiler is a tool that you can use to analyze and improve the behavior of your managed applications.

Enjoy !
