Controllers and Actions

  • Adam Freeman


In this chapter, I continue describing the Web API dispatch process and focus on controllers and action methods. I explain how controllers work in Web API and describe the dispatch process implemented by the default controller class, ApiController. Along the way, I show you how to resolve a common routing problem, explain how requests are mapped to action methods in RESTful Web API controllers, and show you how to customize request dispatching. Table 22-1 summarizes this chapter.
