As a .NET programmer and an avid user of the Global Assembly Cache when dealing with SharePoint one of the things that I have to use most to test my solutions is to recycle the application pool, so that I can put my newly created DLLs and test them.
I use a lot WSPBuilder for this task, but I always wondered : How can I recycle the application pool via command prompt ?
In case you ever wonder the same and still don’t know how to do it, here’s how:
the cscript command is pretty neat. And mostly the Microsoft Platform applications have a .vbs file assigned to them, so give it a try and try some other cool stuff in other apps.
See you later,
