Microsoft .Net Assembly

Microsoft .Net Assembly is a logical unit of code, it contains code that the Common Language Runtime (CLR) executes. Assembly is really a collection of types and resource information that are built to work together and form a logical unit of functionality. During the compile time Metadata is created, with Microsoft Intermediate Language (MSIL), and stored in a file called a Manifest . Both Metadata and Microsoft Intermediate Language (MSIL) together wrapped in a Portable Executable (PE) file. Manifest contains information about itself. This information is called Assembly Manifest, it contains information about the members, types, references and all the other data that the runtime needs for execution.
