Currently a component's dll version has to be the same as the component version in the repository (Packages table) - otherwise the repository will not start.

This applies and will continue to apply only for Release mode libraries.

We want to allow lightweight releases, when the database has not changed (no schema and no content change) only the code has changed to be compatible with the previous component version in the db.


Component releases

These releases all have a corresponding NuGet package with the same version.

Component Version DB change Dependency
CompA 7.1.0 YES
CompA 7.1.1 -
CompA 7.1.2 -
CompA 7.2.0 YES
CompB 3.2.0 YES
CompB 3.2.1 -
CompB 3.2.2 - CompA v7.2.0
CompB 3.3.0 YES CompA v7.2.0
Installed versions (Packages table)
Component Version
CompA 7.1.0
CompA 7.1.1
CompB 3.2.0


Install NuGet package in Visual Studio: CompA, 7.1.2

Result: no error, CompA dll 7.1.2 is compatible with db 7.1.0 (there was no db change since then)


Install NuGet package: CompA, 7.2.0

Result: ERROR, CompA dll 7.2.0 is NOT compatible with db 7.1.1 (there was a db change)
Please execute a patch for CompA.


Install NuGet package: CompB, 3.2.1

Result: no error, CompB dll 3.2.1 is compatible with db 3.2.0 (there was no db change)


Install NuGet package: CompB, 3.2.2 --> this installs CompA 7.2.0 NuGet package, see dependency above

Result: ERROR, CompA 7.2.0 is not installed yet, see Scenario2
Please execute a patch for CompA.
