I have been developing WP's for SP 2010 for some time now, and have not thought about a simple concept. What is the difference between deploying the solution vs deploy? What files are included when deploying the solution? Which should I be doing? Thanks.

  • Do you see two different options in Visual Studio 2010? I only have one deploy option on the Build menu...

I think you are referring to the case when you have a Visual studio solution containing multiple projects. Deploy solution deploys all projects (WSP files) and Deploy just deploys the current project.
