ISAPI is a good choice in this case? RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-868757263 posted

    We have a website builder project,it can build and serve different websites for different internal clients who sit in different countries.

    There are two proposed solutions:

    1. Use ISAPI filter which builds everything from scratch instead of using asp.net framework The reason for this choice is ISAPI can give better performance and can be deployed to apache web server or linux environment.

    The argument for this choice is it basically rebuild everything unnecessary with long time and when it will be deployed to apache or Linux , it still requires Mono.

    2. Use asp.net with some user or custom controls

    The reason for the second choice is it can speed up development and the website can also be deployed to apache and linux with Mono.

    The argument against the second choice is our external senior architect does not have confidence in Mono support for asp.net but he is happy with .Net framework of Mono.

    I am not comfortable with the first choice because it only increases development time and maintenance time with no substantial benefit.


    Please share your ideas or any comment. Appreciate any help.

    I'm not sure how an ISAPI filter (which is IIS specific) can be deployed to apache or linux.

    ASP.NET has many localization features built in to the framework.
