This one hundred page book focuses exclusively on how you can best use the ASP.NET MVC 4 Framework to build world-class REST services using the Web API. It sets aside much of what the ASP.NET MVC Framework can do, and focuses exclusively on how the Web API can help you build web services. You will not find any help on CSS, HTML, JavaScript, or jQuery. Nor will you find any help on the Razor view engine, HTML Helpers, or model binding. If you need this information then Pro ASP.NET MVC 4 is your perfect book.

ASP.NET MVC 4 and the Web API: Building a REST Service from Start to Finish helps you build cutting-edge REST services using ASP.NET MVC 4 and the Web API in more depth and detail than any other resource. ASP.NET MVC has always been a good platform on which to implement REST, but with the advent of the Web API it has now become even better. This book will show you why it's great and how to get the most from it.

Author Jamie Kurtz will take you from zero to full-blown REST service hero in no time at all. And you'll even learn how to incorporate some popular open source tools along the way: little or no experience with ASP.NET or the MVC Framework is required.

What you’ll learn

  • How to design a REST API

  • Understanding MVC and Web API controller activation

  • Utilizing open source tools for common tasks

  • Automatic lifetime management for database connections and transactions

  • Easily secure a REST service, using standards-based authentication and authorization

  • How to choose between using WCF or using the Web API

Who this book is for

This book is written for architects and developers wanting to understand how to quickly and easily build REST services on the ASP.NET platform. No prior knowledge of ASP.NET or MVC Framework is required; however, it assumed you have some experience with the .NET Framework, Visual Studio, and C#.

2.0 von 5 Sternen frustrating 14. April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
While I take books form Apress in high regards, this one seems not to keep up with the standard. This book gives you a quick introduction into the MVC WebAPI, and other things like ReSharper, NHibernate, Ninject, log4net, NUnit, etc.. But, While the author is technically very sound, he seems to lack to take the reader side into account.

This book is not written as a step-by-step tutorial-style introduction how to build an REST Service, but is more a documentation of the code from GitHub ([...]).

If you try to redo the steps in the book, you will find yourself jumping back-and-forth, because you will encounter classes that refer to other classes or interfaces, that you might (not will!) find later in the book. So you stop implementing and just read the code. This is very unfortunately, because books are meant to be read in-order.

While Jamie's argument that the book is not big enough to hold all the code (specially the server-side SQL commands) is totally valid, it would help the book a lot if the classes would be presented in the correct order without missing half of the classes, so that the reader can actually redo it.

Also, I am missing an introduction into OAuth, which would be very well placed in a book like this.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Way too much noise 11. Februar 2013
Von Adam Rackis - Veröffentlicht auf
"It's almost time to start writing the Web API-based controllers for the RESTful task-management service."

So begins page 103, the first page of the last chapter of this 125 page book. So what, you might wonder, did the previous 102 pages contain? The book starts with a great and needed introduction of REST, but then degenerates into page after page of setting up NHibernate mappings, dependency injection, security and authentication, and, I kid you not, Log4Net logging. Page after page that could, and should have been used to show the ins and outs of the Web API, modeling a UI to utilize the RESTful links that are supposed to drive your application, crafting AJAX requests for PUT and DELETE, etc, etc, were instead used to fill up reams and reams of Log4Net XML setup, and DI mappings.

I really wanted to give this book one star, but the REST introduction was actually quite good.

Other than that though this book desperately needed someone to keep the author on track, and focused on what the book was supposed to be about: using the Web API.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Don't buy if you want to learn about the Web API 27. Juni 2013
Von Sheldon Sides - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Only about 10% of the book actually covers the Web API. Most of the book discusses the following topics and tools.

* Using and configuration of NHibernate - not related to Web API
* Dependency Injection - not related to Web API
* Log4Net for logging - not related to Web API. If you have been coding for any amount of time you have your own logging tool.
* Using the ASP.NET Security role provider - could have filled this section with actual info on the Web API. If you have been doing ASP.NET for any amount of time you already know how to use the ASP.NET Security model.

You will spend most of your time learning about the authors favorite O/RM tools, Dependency Injection libraries and logging tools and how to configure them.

You WILL NOT learn how to make REST calls using Ajax. I was looking to learning how to perform basic CRUD using a REST service without all the extraneous tools the authors covers.

If you are looking to actually learn to use the Web API. DO NOT buy this book I repeat DO NOT by this book. You will not get a proper coverage of the Web API.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Generous Today 8. Februar 2013
Von Rex Pebble the II - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I'm halfway through the book and starting to get a bad feeling. Sometime in the past, this work hurtled off the rails. At ~125 pages, one might think that it's rather light on content, and that's a reasonable way to look at it.

But there's more - consider the array of complex libraries hauled into the VS solution including NHibernate, Ninject, log4net, MVC Web API and you have to wonder how much coverage could you hope to get on the theoretical subject of the book. Entire chunks of those precious 125 pages are gobbled up with superficial treatment of important topics like DI and ORM (done the NHibernate way with POCO classes). The result is intellectual whiplash. If you read the brilliant DI classic by Mark Seeman, you can see how important topics like DI get proper treatment. DI flies by in this book in the wink of an eye. The same short shrift gets applied to NHib, Ninject and so on.

BTW, any hope you may have regarding coding along with the author should be abandoned straight away. The book is simply not structured that way. Consider the book to be extended source code comments, not step-wise instructions.

In the prologue to the book (a must read), a friend of the author describes a production meltdown hellscape complete with all the usual suspects running in circles with their aprons over there faces, arms flailing. Into the breach steps the author, Mountain Dew can in hand, nowhere better to go, and nothing but coding bravado coursing through his teenage veins. I fear that the same undisciplined approach evident in this anecdote was applied to the production of this book. Perhaps the author simple bit off way to much and could not meet the demands of publishing a well-rounded treatise.

I generously gave the book 3 stars since the sample application is very well crafted and the author does know what he's doing at a keyboard and whiteboard. I might be able to mine a few nuggets from the source code but it would have been nice to have a detailed discussion to go along with it.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Where's Waldo? 23. Mai 2013
Von Middle Aged Guy - Veröffentlicht auf
As a professional developer, I was looking to use this book as a guide for building a Web API application. There were a couple of good take-aways.
1. Good intro to REstFull programming
2. Use of Hypermedia Links
3. The "Task Operations" is a useful tool for designing Controllers.
4. Integrating Security

The fatal flaw of this book is trying to show an example that has too many associated technologies. I am not interested in wading through a half baked, injection of NHibernate, Ninject, sophistry on Dependency Injection, Moq, NUnit/MSTest, log4net etc. The complexity of all of these items gets in the way of a focused exposition of Web API. I would have preferred a purely Microsoft example, using only those technologies readily available in Visual Studio 2012 Professional.

I think most readers would prefer a few "Hello World" like examples, build on them and then get to the integrations with 3rd party tools in final chapters.

The author is clearly trying to show a "Real World" example, with best of breed 3rd party tools. I appreciate the effort so I gave 2 stars.

Here is a list of NuGet Packages to include in the example:
install-package nunit MVC4ServicesBook.Common.Tests
install-package nunit MVC4ServicesBook.Web.Api.Tests
install-package moq MVC4ServicesBook.Web.Api.Tests
install-package nhibernate MVC4ServicesBook.Data.SqlServer
install-package fluentnhibernate MVC4ServicesBook.Data.SqlServer
install-package log4net MVC4ServicesBook.Web.Api
install-package nhibernate MVC4ServicesBook.Web.Api
install-package fluentnhibernate MVC4ServicesBook.Web.Api
install-package ninject MVC4ServicesBook.Web.Api
install-package ninject.web.common MVC4ServicesBook.Web.Api
install-package Microsoft.AspNet.WebApi.OData -Pre MVC4ServicesBook.Web.Api
install-package log4net MVC4ServicesBook.Web.Common
install-package nhibernate MVC4ServicesBook.Web.Common
install-package ninject MVC4ServicesBook.Web.Common
Thought: Include a Template that has everything already set-up.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Misleading Subtitle 11. Juli 2013
Von Charles Edward - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
The book is subtitled "Building a REST Service from Start to Finish" as if you could actually follow along and do just that. Unfortunately, after stepping through a lot of complex project creation and configuration steps in Chapter 4, in Chapter 5 the author clearly gives up on the building, stops including steps with full sources, and instead refers you to download and explore his pre-created project.

I don't mind his inclusion of third-party tools, but there's no discussion of what's different if you use Entity Framework, for example, instead of NHibernate. How are newbies supposed to differentiate the stuff specific to MVC and REST from code specific to other packages? If you want to create a REST service without the author's particular tools, will this book leave you out in the cold? I don't know the answer to that yet, but frankly I'm worried.

I'm still struggling through the read and hopefully I'll learn from it, but I learn best by following along step-by-step, something this book seems to promise but utterly fails to deliver.
