So, I need to create an application that sits inside sharepoint but that most of the "work" is done on a custom datadase. The goal is to develop something that works whithout sharepoint if needed.
The current solution is to create a custom web part that has custom user controls in it. But I'm having some problems: 1-Some references I need to include aren't assembled with strong names 2-Some references need to access a web.config to work properly
Is the webpart + usercontrols a valid solution? Are there any better alternatives?
