Understanding the importance of the CodeDomProvider class

First, let us identify some of the functions of CodeDomProvider class in a tabular format.

S NO  

Method Name / Property Name         

Description

1

CompileAssemblyFromSource

Compiles an array of source code strings.

2

CreateCompiler

 

Creates an ICodeCompiler that can be used for compilation and returns it.

3

CreateProvider

Creates a CodeDomProvider and returns it.

4

CompileAssemblyFromDom

Compiles an assembly based on the System.CodeDom trees contained in the specified array of System.CodeDom.CodeCompileUnit objects using the specified compiler

 

5

CompileAssemblyFromFile

Compiles an assembly by taking the name of the file.

6

GetLanguageFromExtension

Returns a language name associated with the specified file name extension as configured in the System.CodeDom.Compiler.CodeDomProvider compiler configuration section.

 

7

GetCompilerInfo

Returns the language provider and compiler configuration settings for the specified language.

                  

As we can see from the tabular format, we have methods of two types: Creating a compiler and compiling the source code from an existing compiler.  We can identify here that CodeDomProvider encapsulates the creation part and the compilation part.  Therefore, CodeDomProvider is a vital class in the architecture of CodeDom 2.0.
