Creating a RESTful Web Service Using ASP.Net MVC Part 24 – MVC 3 and More

February 7, 2011 22:23 by admin

Recently MVC 3 was released which is a good reason for me to update our RESTful web service framework. This latest version is compiled against ASP.Net MVC 3 and .Net 4. I have also taken the opportunity to introduce some new features that have either been requested or come out of actual implementations.

Creating a RESTful Web Service Using ASP.Net MVC Part 22 – Reviewing the Rest features in MvcFutures 2

May 1, 2010 22:54 by admin

When ASP.Net MVC 2 came out, it included support for overloading POST requests, something I had previously incorporated into our RESTful framework. The release also came with the latest incarnation of Microsoft’s experimentation with providing a RESTful framework for ASP.Net MVC (this is part of the ASP.NET MVC 2 Futures download). I looked at their first offering in an earlier post when it was known as the “Rest for ASP.Net MVC SDK”. It had some interesting ideas, but wasn’t comprehensive enough for me. So with this new release, I was keen to see if I could retire our framework (or at least parts of it) and use some of the new features. So here I’ll look at each feature I’d like to see in a RESTful web service and see how well it is supported, as well as look at some new ideas altogether.

Creating a RESTful Web Service Using ASP.Net MVC Part 20 – Injecting RESTfulness and Better Encoding

January 16, 2010 00:42 by admin

In this series of posts, I have concentrated upon creating a truly RESTful web service… it has not been a priority to use the full power of ASP.Net MVC’s extensibility. However, this has resulted in a solution that is too intrusive into ASP.Net MVC. The consequences being, any web service developed with the Shoulders of Giants DLL can be difficult to write unit tests for or extend in other directions… so with this and my previous post, I hope to address this.

A little while back I reviewed the Rest for ASP.NET MVC SDK that was released by Microsoft WCF team. I liked some of the ideas it contained so promised to bring some of those into our code. Well, I’ve finally started to do that.

HTTP Error 405 With ASP.Net MVC and HTTP PUT on IIS 7.5

November 27, 2009 21:11 by admin

I have been doing most of my ASP.Net MVC RESTful web service development on IIS6 or IIS7. Recently however, I tried it on Windows 7 RTM using IIS7.5. Using the “Classic .Net AppPool” everything worked great. Then I tried the “DefaultAppPool” (i.e. using Integrated Mode). Everything seemed fine… until I wanted to PUT a new resource and DELETE a resource.

Configuring Windows XP to Allow Non-Administrators to Debug ASP.Net

December 18, 2008 23:43 by Admin

Just a quick post after I’ve spent a merry afternoon trying to configure a Windows XP machine to allow a developer, who hasn’t got Local Administrator rights, to debug an ASP.Net application. This is a subject covered elsewhere including on the MSDN site.
