Article on HTTP Handlers released!

You can read my latest article covering HTTP Handlers in ASP.NET on our local MSDN website via this link. In the article I'm explaining how to work with the equivalent of ISAPI extensions in ASP.NET, i.e. HTTP Handlers:

  • how to create a new extension and map this extension to the ASP.NET runtime?
  • developing and configuring your HTTP Handler
  • replacing the .jpg extension with your own handler to enable the dynamic creation of thumbnails
  • how to display a photo gallery on a folder containing pictures

In the last part of the article I do some performance testing and I'm introducing the use of the ASP.NET cache to improve the performance of our thumbnail generation handler.
