Hello world web service solution.

When I use the settings <hostingEnvironment shadowCopyBinAssemblies="false"/> in the web.config file and use a virtual directory with the web server, the binaries are still copied to the ASP.Net Temporary Files directoryr. If I don't use the virtual directory, the binaries are not copied.

Steps to reproduce :

1- Make sure that the ASP.Net Temporary Files directory is empty to see the directory creation. In Windows, it's in %windir%\<currentuser>\AppData\Local\Temp\<username>-temp-aspnet\, in Linux /tmp/<webserver_username>-temp-aspnet

2- Compile the web service, the web.config file already has the right setting for shadowCopyBinAssemblies.

3- Start xsp web server with a virtual directory in the project root directory, xsp2 --applications /test:.

4- Connect to the web server and you'll see the dll copied in the ASP.Net Temporary Files directory.

5- To see the correct behavior, clean the ASP.Net Temporary Files directory. Start xsp without a virtual directory and connect to the web server. The binary is not copied.

Not seen with Microsoft .Net.

Reproduced also with Linux.
