Referencing External Assemblies not in GAC

Referencing External Assemblies not in GAC

Referencing External Assemblies not in GAC

I've written a couple of methods in a C# class library using an API .dll provided by a partner company. I want to call these methods from within an Orchestration.

Now the way I understand it is that everything that Biztalk references must be installed in the GAC. Is this statement correct? The reason I ask is that when I try to add the API .dll to the GAC it tells me that it isn't strong named, so before I go back and whinge to the partner company I want to get my facts right.

Do I need to install this dll into the GAC before I can use it? Or can I use the BTSTask tool to deploy it somehow (into the Biztalk config db) and use it?
