Last November Microsoft announced ASP.NET 5 as a new open source and cross-platform framework for building modern Web and cloud applications using the Microsoft .NET Framework. We (the ASP.NET development team, of which I’m a part) released ASP.NET 5 Preview along with Visual Studio 2015 Preview at the Connect(); event in New York City. I introduced you to the ASP.NET 5 runtime and its new Visual Studio project system in the “Introducing the ASP.NET 5 Preview” article from the special Dec. 15, 2014, Issue of MSDN Magazine (bit.ly/1K4PY4U). Since that last look at ASP.NET 5 in December there have been two more preview releases of ASP.NET 5: Beta2 with Visual Studio 2015 CTP 5, and Beta3 with Visual Studio 2015 CTP 6. With each release, the framework continues to evolve and improve. In many cases, these improvements were generously contributed by the .NET community through the public ASP.NET project on GitHub (bit.ly/1DaY7Cd). In this article, I’ll take a deeper look under the hood of the new ASP.NET 5 runtime to see what’s changed in the most recent release.
In this second post in my six-part series on ASP.NET 5, we’ll take a look at how your ASP.NET 5 applications will be configured upon startup. The startup in this new version of ASP.NET 5 is very different, but hopefully is clearer and easier to debug. At least that’s my impression so far.
If you haven’t read the prior topics, it would probably be helpful to start with the earlier articles. You can see a list of the links to the articles below:
I spent the last couple of weeks writing sample code for ASP.NET 5/MVC 6 and I was surprised by the depth of the changes in the current beta release of ASP.NET 5. ASP.NET 5 is the most significant new release of ASP.NET in the history of the ASP.NET framework — it has been rewritten from the ground up.
My first coding foray into EF7 was as a code monkey for Pranav Rastogi from the ASP.NET team at TechEd Europe where he walked me through converting a simple EF6 app to EF7. (“Entity Framework Now and Later”, my bit starts at about 50 minutes in.) My next EF7 playtime was working through demos created…

Pre-existing databases can pose some difficulties for software developers using an ORM. To demonstrate ways of circumventing them, Jon Smith builds an ASP.NET MVC application with Entity Framework (EF) to provide a user interface to Microsoft’s AdventureWorks sample SQL database. He shares his design approach for displaying and updating this data with real examples from the test web application he built.
ASP.NET 5 has been largely rewritten from the ground up, and incorporates some radical changes when compared with previous versions of ASP.NET. One of the biggest changes is in the HTTP Pipeline. This article looks at how those changes impact the design and registration of plug and play components that used to be represented by HttpModules.
As part of the Azure SDK 2.5.1 release, a new feature called Azure API Apps were included. This new feature raises the capabilities of ASP.NET Web API, extending it with Swagger metadata while providing a simple to manage interface in the Azure Portal. Extend your API with authentication and no code changes, or generate an SDK for your API with a few clicks. A full definition of API Apps and their capabilities is available in the online Azure documentation. Video coverage of the API Apps announcement with Scott Guthrie is available online
This article is inspired by an MVP summit talk about common pitfalls in the C# asynchronous programming model. I look at a number of easy to make mistakes when writing asynchronous code in C# and demonstrate that most of them would not easily happen when using F#.
