CodeBase (or Code Base)
A repository of ‘source coding’ of sorts, working together with code attribute in tag, to give direct and complete specification of location (where to find), main applet class file. An illustrative example would be where codebase specifies the URL of the directory containing the file. It indicates where to find an assembly, source codes for applications or components, something you will require for configuring the .NET Framework environment. This refers to a utility for installing, configuring and managing applications, A stipulation or parameter, general rule of sorts, allowing specification of an assembly for a particular version.
Codebases are practical utilities, in the config files, best-suited for when the computer, does not have an iteration of the assembly, required to run the application.
Code writing, codebases make settings changes, and enabling applications configurations options plausible and possible. It helps to manage applications and assemblies. Codebase is, quite simply put, the method and form, for applications to use semantics, loading, finding classes, applications, assemblies. A serialized stream of bytes with information is called the codebase. Where to find the implementation exactly, specified. A useful tool for both convenience and security management. Improper use of CodeBase can affect and even hide problems, even if the applications ‘work’.
Key Exam Points
- Practice and reinforce exercises for meaning of the term and its use.
For the exam study examples for codeBase case-scenarios and solutions, practice tests.
