Application_Start in Orchard Modules

I have what may be a dumb question...

I created an Orchard module using EF 4.1 (code first method) and put a breakpoint on the start of my application_start method inside the Global.asax.cs file.  I did this so I could determine if my EF database ever gets re-created upon a database change.

The program trace never gets inside the Application_Start method.  Is this an Orchard thing?  Does Orchard recognize the Global.asax.cs file ??

Thanks in advance for any responses.

where is your global.asax file?

In the root of my module.

Your module is not the application. The only global.asax that ASP.NET MVC uses is the one in the root of the app.

Would that be the same for the Web.Config file as well ??  Do I need to edit the Web.Config file in the Orchard.Web folder for any modules that I create or can my custom modules hace web.config files specific to the modules??

Thanks again...

No, local web.configs are handled by ASP.NET.
