ASP.NET MVC routing Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Routing in ASP.NET MVC Creating a RESTful interface to your site
  • 2. Remember, browsers make HTTP requests
  • 3. HTTP requests use a verb to communicate their intent › GET › POST › PUT › DELETE
  • 4. Alright. Got that out of the way. Now back to our regularlyscheduled lecture. ›  asdf
  • 5. Which is better? This … http://tic.com/Report.aspx? t=Sales&y=2013&m=07! … or this … http://tic.com/Sales/2013/7! Why?
  • 6. Reasons ›  SEO ›  Easy to type ›  Easy to remember ›  Hides implementation stack ›  URLs don’t have to change when the site changes. ›  Hackable
  • 7. URLs point to resources. ›  Uniform ________________ locator ›  They don’t point to pages ›  So RESTful URLs are more accurate, actually
  • 8. HI, I'm Roy Fielding, the inventor of REST. REST is ... an architectural style … for addressing resources … in a stateless environment … that reduces coupling
  • 9. A RESTful URL is one that conforms to all of the constraints ›  Separation between client and server ›  Stateless communication ›  Cacheable ›  A layered system ›  A uniform interface
  • 10. A layered system has predictable parts The usual method Properly RESTful url Category Category Thing Thing Action ID ID (Use HTTP method as action)
  • 11. Use the HTTP requests to specify the action › GET › POST › PUT › DELETE
  • 12. The URL should act as an API › http://tic.com/Customer/List › http://tic.com/Customer/Create › http://tic.com/Customer/Details/71 › http://tic.com/Customer/Edit/71 › http://tic.com/Customer/Delete/71 › http://tic.com/Department › http://tic.com/Employee › http://tic.com/AddToCart/17
  • 13. Or better yet ... › GET http://tic.com/Customer › POST http://tic.com/Customer › GET http://tic.com/Customer/71 › PUT http://tic.com/Customer/71 › DELETE http://tic.com/Customer/71 › GET http://tic.com/Department › GET http://tic.com/Employee › POST http://tic.com/AddToCart/17
  • 14. There are certain things you can do to make a URL RESTful ›  Give every “thing” an ID ›  Link things together ›  Use standard methods ›  Communicate statelessly ›  Provide multiple representations
  • 15. Resources with multiple representations › HTML › XML › VCard › RSS
  • 16. Okay, I'm sold on RESTful urls. How do I get them into MVC?
  • 17. Registering routes tells IIS that if a user asks for X, send them to Y
  • 18. We use the MapRoute() method to create these routes MyRoutes.MapRoute(! string RouteName,! string UrlPattern,! object Defaults);! ›  Says when an url matching UrlPattern comes through, what do we do with it?
  • 19. Routing in ASP.NET MVC are set in Application_Start ›  Pulled out into a static method by default. public static void RegisterRoutes(RouteCollection routes)! {! routes.IgnoreRoute("{resource}.axd/{*pathInfo}");! routes.MapRoute(! "Default", // Route name! "{controller}/{action}/{id}", // URL with parms! new { controller = "Home", action = "Index", ! id = UrlParameter.Optional } // defaults! );! }!
  • 20. Routes are matched in order that they appear
  • 21. Hardcoded routes are easy routes.MapRoute(! "ListAllProducts",! "Product/List",! new { ! controller="Home", ! action="ShowProducts"! }! );!
  • 22. Hands-on literal routes
  • 23. Can receive arguments by putting them in curly braces ›  aka. URL Parameters
  • 24. Examples Route definition Example of matching url {controller}/{action}/{category} Product/show/beverage {table}/details.aspx Products/Details.aspx blog/{action}/{entry} blog/read/1234 blog/{entry}-{SEOString} blog/2234-Why-string-theory-isflawed {reportType}/{year}/{month}/{day} sales/2012/7/15 {locale}/{action} en-US/show
  • 25. Hands-on matching routes
  • 26. Optional parameters can save you from creating a lot of routes ›  Example: you want to match ›  Clients/Miller ›  Clients/Miller/Harold ›  Clients/Miller/Harold/Dr … with the same route ›  Simply make first name and title optional with: new { FirstName = UrlParameter.Optional, Title = UrlParameter.Optional }!
  • 27. Hands-on optional parameters
  • 28. Hands-on default values
  • 29. Regular expression constraints routes.MapRoute(! "BlogArchive",! "Archive/{entryDate}",! new { controller="Blog", action="Archive" }, ! new { entryDate=@"d{2}-d{2}-d{4}" }! );!
  • 30. Hands-on constraints
  • 31. Conclusion ›  RESTful urls are easier to use, therefore better ›  MVC lends itself well to REST; in fact REST is pretty much required to get to controllers and actions ›  Routes are set up using RegisterRoutes()
  • 32. Oh! And one more thing ... These routes work for WebForms also ›  They're exactly the same.
