API Controllers

  • Adam Freeman


Not all controllers are used to send HTML documents to clients. There are also API controllers, which are used to provide access to an application’s data. This is a feature that was previously provided through the separate Web API framework but has now been integrated into ASP.NET Core MVC. In this chapter, I explain the role that API controllers play in a web application, describe the problems they solve, and demonstrate how they are created, tested, and used. Table 20-1 puts API controllers in context.
