Binding an HTTP Request into CLR Objects

  • Badrinarayanan Lakshmiraghavan


The ASP.NET Web API framework reads each incoming HTTP request and creates the parameter objects for your action methods in the controller. This is one of the powerful features of the ASP.NET Web API framework that keeps the code in the controller classes free of the repetitive work related to HTTP infrastructure and helps you, the developer, focus on implementing the business requirements at hand. Table 5-1 shows the different types of bindings possible with ASP.NET Web API, the corresponding out-of-the-box class associated with the binding, the part of the request from which data is used for binding, the type of the parameter bound, and the extensibility options available.
