This section lays out a roadmap for the Microsoft ASP. This is a planning document, not a specification of what is to come. NET family that facilitates adding real-time functionality to web applications using Web Sockets and other down-level transports.
This will include item templates for adding Signal R connections and hubs to an ASP. We want to make it very simple for developers to take applications inside their organization that use Active Directory for security and be able to move them to Azure Cloud using the same Windows authentication.
NET application as well as a full project template that integrates with ASP. This allows application to be moved to Azure without significant changes.
This will involve new tooling in Visual Studio that allows you to enable Windows Azure authentication in a few simple steps.
Web API will be extended to enable richer OData functionality, expand support for Windows Store Apps and enable simple tracing and monitoring. There you can find source code and other information, file bugs, give feedback and even contribute.
With the release of VS 2012 we added support for OAuth and Open ID to our project templates and existing membership system.
Moving forward we are looking at creating a more modern abstraction than the existing membership providers. NET Web pages by using dynamic languages such as Iron Python and Iron Ruby. NET QA: Testing related releases and sample code from the ASP. Runtime: This area contains previews of future API's and features for the ASP.
These would provide first class support for modern methods of authentication (such as Open Auth/Open ID), as well as local username and password. NET Web Forms framework enables rapid development of Web applications. NET Dynamic-Language Runtime (DLR) is a framework for using .
It would also include support for the developer to easily change the underlying storage mechanism to SQL Server, Azure Table or any other store of choice. Furthermore, shims will be provided to make it easy for applications using the existing membership providers to take advantage of the new system as well. NET Ajax Library includes the Ajax Control Toolkit and enables you to build database-driven web applications that execute entirely in the web browser. NET Dynamic Data enables you to quickly build a functional data-driven application, based on LINQ-to-SQL or ADO.
In addition, the template will be updated to use the new functionality. New functionality is provided by new templates that enable scenarios for building ASP.
NET applications that feature Azure, Single Page Applications, real time updates using Signal R and Facebook integration.
We are planning to focus on new runtime functionality after the fall update.
