Lesson 4: Extending ASP.NET Core HTTP Services

ASP.NET Core Web API provides a complete solution for building HTTP services, but services often have various needs and dependencies. In many cases, professionals will need to extend or customize the way ASP.NET Core Web API executes your service. Handling needs such as applying error handling and logging integrate with other components of your app and supporting other standards that are available in the HTTP world. Understanding the way ASP.NET Core Web API works is important when professionals extend ASP.NET Core Web API. The division of responsibilities between elements and the order of implementing are essential when intervening with the way ASP.NET Core Web API executes. Finally, with ASP.NET Core Web API, professionals can also extend the way professionals interact with other parts of your system.

Q: What is Microsoft Azure used for?


A: At its core, Azure is a public cloud computing platform—with solutions including Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS) which can be easily used for services like  analytics, virtual computing, storage, networking,etc.


Q: Does Azure require coding?


A: Azure as a platform can be learned without knowing any programming at all. Although if you wish to deploy an application to Azure then you may need to write some configuration code or a deployment script. But for normal infrastructure management and other tasks you can use Azure.


Q: What do you mean by Web services?


A: A web service is any piece of software that makes itself available over the internet and uses a standardized XML messaging system. XML is generally used to encode all types of  communications to a web service. A web service is mainly a collection of open protocols and standards which is used for exchanging data between various applications or systems.


Q: What is SOAP and REST Web services?


A: SOAP is a standardized protocol that sends messages using other protocols such as HTTP and SMTP. It mainly allows various different messaging formats like HTML, JSON, XML, and plain text and on the other hand SOAP only allows XML. REST also can be a more lightweight architecture and hence RESTful web services have a better performance.
