The Web Client Software Factory includes a guidance package named Web Client Software Factory 2010. A guidance package consists of named collections of recipes, templates, value providers, type editors, type converters, and actions (for a description of these items, see "Guidance Packages" in the Glossary of Terms). Developers can use a guidance package to perform a series of development activities in Visual Studio—activities that developers usually have to perform manually. For example, developers can use the Web Client Software Factory 2010 Guidance Package to create an initial solution structure that includes a Web site, a foundational module, and required references to the Composite Web Application Block and Enterprise Library assemblies.
