Web Application project was launched with Visual studio 2005. Both the models has their own characteristics.

Web Application Project -
1. Run on IIS as well as ASP.net internal server.
2. The compiled output is a single assembly.
3. Change in one perticular file requires recompilation of entire application.
4. Consist of its own project file, so the application is structured based on the project file.
