I've been developing a web part and making use of WSPBuilder's handy 'Copy to GAC' menu option to redeploy the corresponding DLL when I make a change. This is nice and speedy so I don't have to do a full redeploy of the .wsp solution.
Now I want to actually deploy this web part so the DLL gets deployed to the web app's
bin directory. That's fine -- I've changed the WSPBuilder
DeploymentTarget setting to
BIN, and it installs to the correct place when I deploy the wsp solution. But I'd like a quick way to copy the DLL to the correct
bin dir whilst I'm developing.
I guess I could add a post-build xcopy to copy it to the right place. Is that the most sensible way? Is the reason there's a 'Copy to GAC' option but no 'Copy to bin' because it's really simple to copy to bin, and ever-so-slightly more complicated to GAC the DLL?
