    Hi Ragavendran,

    Have you Google the Same..?

    First Go through few articles and if you have any doubts on that then let us know, with out reading any content you can't understand for sure.

    We can give 2 -3 lines of description, that is not helpful to you to understand what is .dll, when to use that, how to generate it etc...

    My suggestion is first go through any one best article then you can understand what is what.

    For overview of this, I will share you 2- 3 words about this.

    DLL: Dynamic Link Library, which holds properties, methods, classes. When you add this as a reference in referenced file you can able to call those properties, methods and classes information.

    Hope this will helpful to you...

    Give respect to your work, Instead of trying to impress your boss.

    I suggest you to learn the concept of assemblies in c#. As Mr.Naveen said its not easy to understand with few lines of answers posted here.

    Get the basic idea of dll(dynamic link library) and dig deep to master the concept.

    Collection of classes is called as namespace, collection of namespaces is called as assembly.
    These assemblies(dll's) contain the reusable logic which is developed in one programming language and can be used in another language while developing applications using add reference of that particular dll.

    In c# we have class library template to develop a dll file.
