  • Integrating Backbone.js with ASP.NET Web API

    In case you did not see the latest news, what we used to know as WCF Web API was recently rebranded and included in ASP.NET MVC 4 as ASP.NET Web API. While both frameworks are similar in essence with focus on HTTP, the latter was primarily designed for building HTTP services that don’t typically require an user intervention. For example, some AJAX endpoints or a Web API for a mobile application. While you could use ASP.NET MVC for implementing those kind of services, that would require some extra work for implementing things right like content-negotiation, documentation, versioning, etc. What really matter is that both framework share many of the extensibility points like model binders, filters or routing to name a few.
