however it appears from the description of what Auto-Starting an asp.net application should do is call the Application_Start method for the website. If I want to write a custom provider to do this (which I have on another proof of concept) I need to
manually update a config file for this to work. Additionally there are quite a few things that might be happening in the Application_Start method: initializing routing, registering IOC containers, caching, service bus registration etc. So
to pull all that out and put it into a custom provider seems odd.
Are there any plans for AppFabric to instantiate the Application_Start during warm up? If not any suggestions on how others are handling all of the other things that are currently being done in Application_Start that would be nice to have done before
someone hits the site for the first time?
