We have one single internal website.
Underneath this website (in IIS) we have two web applications:
1-Main web application
2-Web services (created using the visual studio web api project template)
The webservices are called by the pages in the main application.
They are also called by our database in some SQL CLR functions.
They are not called by any other applications.
A - Can these two web applications be merged into one?
Meaning merged into one web application project in Visual Studio.
B - If they can be merged into one, should they be?
Arguments for no they should not be merged:
1- for the day we create another application that consumes the services
