Practical ASP.NET Web API, Paperback / softback Book

Practical ASP.NET Web API Paperback / softback


Practical ASP.NET Web API provides you with a hands-on and code-focused demonstration of the ASP.NET Web API in action.

From the very beginning, you'll be writing working code in order to see best practices and concepts in action.

As the book progresses, the concepts and code will become more sophisticated.

Beginning with an overview of the web service model in general and Web API in particular, you'll progress quickly to a detailed exploration of the request binding and response formatting that lie at the heart of Web API.

You'll investigate various scenarios and see how they can be manipulated to achieve the results you need.

Later in the book more sophisticated themes will be introduced that will set your applications apart from the crowd.

You'll learn how you can validate the request messages on arrival, how you can create loosely coupled controllers, extend the pipeline processing to compartmentalize your code for security and unit testing before being put onto a live hosting server.
