Custom HTTPHandler, IIS and VS.Net 2003

P: n/a
Environment: VS.Net, IIS 5.0

I have implemented a custom HTTP Handler to which both my thick and
thin client connect to. I have made the required addition to the
Web.config file.

While creating my Server dll project I removed the root namespace
which .Net puts in by default and put all my files under the
Auric.Footprints.Server namespace. When I removed the root namespace
(changed it to nothing) there was an error in the Global.asax file
which I had to manually change for the project to run. The
Global.asax file as it now stands is NOT in any namespace.

I have a dataobject dll which I share between the thick client and the
server projects.

Now the projects work fine for a while. It seems whenever I change
the dataobjects and rebuild the server and client I get an error in
this line.

<httpHandlers> <add verb="*" path="abc.sync"
type="Auric.Footprints.Server.FrontController,Serv er"/>

Saying that it is unable to load the Frontcontroller class.

Then I delete the bin directory in the Server, remove the obj files
from the VsWebCache directory and remove the temporary files from the
Framework directory and then it works sometimes.

Both the above projects are in Source Safe. I dont know if that makes
a difference. I have deployed a working server dll on another IIS
server and it is working well for the past 7 days without any

I am completely frustrated trying to get this to work consistently
during development. Any help is appreciated.
