Can I use Windows Identity Foundation 3.5/4.0 with a .NET 4.5 solution? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Scenario:  multiple existing apps targeting previous versions of .NET and new applications targeting 4.5 are all moving to an SSO model using WIF.

    I want to create some reusable components to make the adoption much more uniform enterprise-wide.  If I create the components targeting the new namespacing, etc then I will need to upgrade all my solutions to 4.5 to implement SSO in them.

    My thought is that I should create this reusable bit in the previous version of WIF if I can have the 4.5 projects use it, then in the future, when all projects are migrated to 4.5, recode my library to use the new WIF in .NET 4.5.
