Lifetime of .net assemblies called from a map..

(or custom xslt)

I should have done this a long time ago, but I did not, until last week, test how are assemblies used from within a map (using the scripting functiod) or from custom xslt reused by Biztalk (if at all)

It seems that, as with any other assembly in the messaging side of BizTalk it loads them on first use and keeps them in memory for re-use.

This is excellent news if you are making sure they are absolutly stateless (as you should) and obviously not so good news if you counted on a fresh instance created for each translation.
