New Features on ASP.NET Core 2.2 – Best and Cheap Unlimited ASP.NET Hosting

New Features on ASP.NET Core 2.2

Microsoft has announced ASP.NET Core 2.2 within the global update of .NET Core SDK 2.2.100.

This update, included in the December 2018 update, requires Visual Studio 2017 15.9 or higher, or Visual Studio for Mac v7.7 or higher, or Visual Studio Code C # extension v1.17.1 or higher. Regardless of this, we could also install it as an optional component within Visual Studio 2019 16.0 Preview 1.

The list of ASP.NET improvements is quite strong, although the focus of this version was on all things performance and productivity in development.

The integration with Open API (Swagger) has been improved, the performance in routing with MVC has been improved, a new application health check API ( Health Checks API ) has been added, it has been improved up to 400% the throughput in IIS and 15% validation of the model in MVC. There is a preview of HTTP / 2, and the templates have been updated to Bootstrap 4 and Angular 6. We will also find a Java client for ASP.NET Core SignalR and improvements of up to 60% with Linux in HTTP Client and 20% in Windows.

The integration with Open API (Swagger)

Open API (alternatively known as Swagger) is a language-agnostic specification for describing REST APIs. The Open API ecosystem has tools that allows for discovering, testing and producing client code using the specification. Support for generating and visualizing Open API documents in ASP.NET Core MVC is provided via community driven projects such as NSwag, and Swashbuckle.AspNetCore.

Endpoint Routing

The new routing features will be on by default for 2.2 applications using MVC. UseMvc and related methods with the 2.2 compatibility version will enable the new ‘Endpoint Routing’ feature set. Existing conventional routes (using MapRoute) or attribute routes will be mapped into the new system. If you need to specifically revert the new routing features, this can be done by setting an option.

Link Generation

Added a new service called LinkGenerator, it is a singleton service that supports generating paths and absolute URIs both with and without an HttpContext. If you need to generate links in Middleware or somewhere outside of Razor then this new service will be useful to you. You can use it in Razor, but the existing APIs like Url.Action are already backed by the new service so you can continue to use those.

SignalR Java Client

In ASP.NET Core 2.2 they are introducing a Java Client for SignalR. The first preview of this new client is available now. This client supports connecting to an ASP.NET Core SignalR Server from Java code, including Android apps.

The API for the Java client is very similar to that of the already existing .NET and JavaScript clients but there are some important differences to note.

ASP.NET Core Module Improvements

They’ve introduced a new module (aspNetCoreModuleV2) for hosting ASP.NET Core application in IIS in 2.2.0-preview1. This new module adds the ability to host your .NET Core application within the IIS worker process and avoids the additional cost of reverse-proxying your requests over to a separate dotnet process.

Health Checks API

Health checks are used by a container orchestrator or load balancer to quickly determine if a system is responding to requests normally. A container orchestrator might respond to a failing health check by halting a rolling deployment or restarting a container. A load balancer might respond to a health check by routing traffic away from the failing instance of the service.

Typically health checks are exposed by an application as a simple HTTP endpoint used by monitoring systems. Creating a dedicated health endpoint allows you to specialize the behavior of that endpoint for the needs of monitoring systems.

Beat Pulse

On the other hand, the people of PlainConcepts have in their package BeatPulse a good news to give as it now supports the new Health Checks API.

BeatPulse project was created to fill a gap in Asp.Net Core ecosystem when no health checks libraries were available.

Now that Microsoft is rolling out their own health checks integration, the Beatpulse project will be focused in contributing towards this library.

Health checking is the process where load balancers or application delivery controller does periodic checks on our applications to make sure that they are up and responding without any problems. If our applications are down for whatever reason or any of the systems that our applications depends on (A database, a distributed cache, web service, ect) are down, the load balancer, k8s, should detect this and stop sending traffic its way trying to restore services manually or automatically.

BeatPulse is a powerfull liveness, readiness library for .NET Core Applications with many out of box enterprise health check services.


Remember that in the development environment the most logical is to install the new SDK, which in turn will deploy .NET Core 2.2 Runtime and ASP.NET Core 2.2.
