ViewStateToDB version 1.0 is out

ViewStateToDB is a small project that I created some time ago. Now I thought it was time to get it out as an open source project in case others have a need for the same functionality. I have created a project on CodePlex for it, wrapped up the code and made a release.

What is ViewStateToDB? As the name implies it's a single assembly to be used in an ASP.NET Web Form site/application in order to persist the view state to a database instead of to the page/HTML. This saves both bandwidths as the size of the page is greatly reduced, and the security is increased since the view state is not publicly visible anymore.

Have a look at CodePlex for more information about ViewStateToDB.
