ASP.NET Core Web API – How to Handle Get Request

The Get Request in .NET Core as in any other Web API we create is the thing we can’t miss because it is the most common request. So, it is very important to learn more about handling that kind of request. In the previous post, we have created a repository pattern for collecting the data from the database. Now, it is time to use that repository for the business logic. We are going to keep all the database logic inside the repository classes. Controllers will be responsible for handling requests, model validation and returning responses to the frontend part...

ASP.NET Core Web API – Repository Pattern

What is Repository pattern and why should we use it? With the Repository pattern, we create an abstraction layer between the data access and the business logic layer of an application. By using it, we are promoting a more loosely coupled approach to access our data from the database. Also, the code is cleaner and easier to maintain and reuse. Data access logic is in a separate class, or sets of classes called a repository, with the responsibility of persisting the application’s business model. Implementing the repository pattern is our topic for this post. So let’s start. Creating a Database...

ASP.NET Core Web API – Logging With NLog

Why is logging so important during the application development? Well, while your application is in the developing stage it is very easy to debug the code and to find out what went wrong. But, can you debug in the production environment? Of course not.  That is why logging messages are a great way to find out what went wrong and where did error happen in your code in the production environment. .NET Core has its own implementation of logging messages, but in all my projects, I prefer to create my own custom logger service.  This is what I am going to...

ASP.NET Core Web API – .NET Core Service Configuration

.NET Core configuration differs greatly from the standard .NET projects. We don’t have anymore a web.config file but instead, we use a built-in Configuration framework that comes with the .NET Core. Therefore having a good understanding of how to configure your project and how to configure the services, which you will use until the end of the development process, is a must. In this post, I will explain to you how to use the configuration methods in the Startup class. Also, you will learn how to register different services and how to use extension methods to help you achieve...
