    Is the "SitefinityWebApp" a pre-requisite namespace or assembly name for a SF application?

    Currently using v6.1 and am supporting an application that has been built by a 3rd party. The application currently has an assembly name of SiteFinityWebApp, and namespaces to match. We would like to change this to match company standards and I've made approriate changes to our managed code, and the controls within the database (sf_object_data) but have a runtime error:

    Could not load the assembly 'SitefinityWebApp'.

    When I ransack the codebase, I can see 5 references to SitefinityWebApp within Telerik.SiteFinity.dll, including the namespace for DisplayItems.ascx.cs:

    <%@ Control Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="DisplayItems.ascx.cs" Inherits="SitefinityWebApp.DisplayItems" %>

    Using JustDecompile this is contained within an "IntegrationExample" class.

    Hello Mark,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    You are fully safe to change your current projects namespace to whatever you want. This can be done in various ways and I believe you are not writing to us so that we can list them to you.

    Your concern is understandible - you do not want to break anything in the system by changing a reference to a namespace, but the SitefinityWebApp is not actually used in any code in the IntegrationExample class - it is part of a string. This string can be viewed when you refer to the code reference of a dynamic module and click on Integration Example for YourModule. Please refer to the attached image for further clarification.

    I hope this information is helpful. Let me know if there are any further questions.
