is there any limit to the complexity of what can be developed with Add-Ins as opposed to COM registered extensions?
but surely the same custom code can be used and developed, and ArcObjects extended to the same extent and complexity with either approach? Is it actually the case that both development models are as capable as each other?
Is it that there are benefits to the COM extension approach when multiple developers are working on an extension, as opposed to the Add-In model?
Is it that the COM extension is the clear choice when developing an extension on a commercial basis, as extension licensing and the requirement to have an administrator control on application distribution make COM extensions more appropriate for this scenario?
How does one decide which approach is most suitable, as the boundary between the two approaches appears to be rather blurred?
I have an existing extension that implements ILayer to retrieve info on the layers in the TOC - is this possible with an Add-in?
