Today Kurt and I were attempting to debug an Web API service we had deployed to a remote machine. The service was returning 500 errors, and for various reasons, we couldn’t just try to do the requests from that deployed box. We wanted to get the full exception details in the response, but we were just seeing blank 500 errors, with no responses.
The official word on changes from Beta to RC for Web API-related topics (filtered from the original page). ASP.NET Web API now uses Json.NET for JSON formatting: The default JSON formatter in ASP.NET Web API now uses Json.NET for JSON serialization.
I've been working with ASP.NET MVC on a few different projects now, and yet I've never been happy with my controllers. My view models were normally pretty simple, but my controllers, especially when saving, were starting to feel like spaghetti.
ASP.net MVC has also become one of the web’s most popular server side frameworks and the latest iteration, MVC4 was recently released into beta. One of it’s newer features is called, Web API and is a way of creating a REST service inside of an MVC application.
HTML5 makes it possible to develop more powerful and more user friendly web applications than we could do ever before. One of the interesting new features is support for drag and drop of files. In the past, if your application needed to provide the possibility to upload files you had to use a file selection chooser. Although this works without issues in all browsers, it is far from user friendly. In native applications, users can interact with files by using drag and drop which is much more intuitive. Luckily for us, HTML5 now also supports this and it is already supported in a number of browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, …).
HttpClient is a modern HTTP client for .NET applications. It can be used to consume functionality exposed over HTTP. For example, a functionality exposed by an ASP.NET Web API can be consumed in a desktop application using HttpClient. Using HttpClient you can send requests and receive responses using standard HTTP verbs such as GET, POST, PUT and DELETE. In this article you will learn how to use HttpClient to consume ASP.NET Web API.
In the previous post, I briefly introduced you to the IApiExplorer which can be used to generate documentation, machine-readable metadata, or a test client. In this blog post, we’re going to take a closer look at the ApiExplorer, which is the default implementation of IApiExplorer, and see how we can use it to generate a simple help page. A help page is nothing more than a web-based documentation for your web APIs

I started a new ASP.NET MVC project recently and wanted to give you a little insight on kicking off new projects. There’s some setup time you want to spend setting up your solution and getting the plumbing in order before you dive into writing unit tests and building out your site.
NHibernate and Entity Framework are two of the most popular O/RM frameworks on the .NET world. Although they share some functionality, there are some aspects on which they are quite different. This post will describe this differences and will hopefully help you get started with the one you know less. Mind you, this is a personal selection of features to compare, it is by no way an exhaustive list.
The official ASP.NET Web Stack RC NuGet packages are now available on NuGet. If you are new to NuGet then it is a Visual Studio extension that makes it easy to add, remove, and update libraries and tools in Visual Studio projects (check out the NuGet overview).
We are using ASP.NET MVC 4 beta on a new project as it should be out of beta before we go live. Even if not, they do have a Go Live license option. Each time I start using a new version of ASP.NET MVC and check the "Create a unit test project" checkbox, I always let out a groan when I remember that MSTest is my only initial option. The combobox might as well be empty as far as I'm concerned.
Routing is the key aspect of every MVC application – after all, it’s how people get to your application, and how search engines see it. As flexible as routing in ASP.NET MVC has been, one would often end up in frustrating situations where more flexibility was needed (or you simply started getting lost in a maze of routes)
I am a huge fan of Ajax. If you want to create a great experience for the users of your website – regardless of whether you are building an ASP.NET MVC or an ASP.NET Web Forms site — then you need to use Ajax. Otherwise, you are just being cruel to your customers.
