ASP.Net Core architecture and flow explanation RRS feed

  • Question

  • User1964052625 posted

    I would like to understand ASP.Net Core in-depth, so I would understand the entire flow and the components involved from the http request to the response in the case of simple rest API.
    So not only the middleware pipeline but also the components that control authorization, validation, serialization etc.

    Can you show me a good resource to find this kind of information or a good book?

    Microsoft's documentation is ok but not thorough. The only idea I have at the moment is to only follow the flow stages by debugging the ASP.Net Core source code, but it's a bit difficult.

    It seems you've already explored stepping through the Framework source so please ignore my suggestion below


    I feel I should point out that authorization/validation and serialization are also part of the same DI and middleware pipelines. With the source code available - you might find that tracing your request through the framework actually is a decent learning experience
