How to create web project in VS 2005

Unlike web project in VS 2003, website model of VS 2005 does not generate single assembily therefore migrating a web application developed in VS 2003 into website in VS 2005 creates challenge for the developers and some times does not fit into the existing requirement. So after getting feedback from the developer community around the world Microsoft introduced an add-in called "Visual Studio 2005 Web Application Projects" to overcome this problem.

Visual Studio 2005 Web Application Projects adds new project template called "web" under the project types in the New Project window. Now you can use this web project to create or migrate web application developed using VS 2003 in the VS 2005.

The add-in is available in the download section of my blog.

Note:- Before installing this add-in you need to install a patch called "Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 – Update to Support Web Application Projects" that is also available in the download section.
