Overview of this book

Every full-stack ninja needs the tools to operate on front-end and back-end application development. This web app development book takes a hands-on, project-based approach to provide you with all the tools and techniques that web developers need to create, debug, and deploy efficient web applications using ASP.NET Core and Angular. The fifth edition has been updated to cover advanced topics such as Minimal APIs, Web APIs with GraphQL, real-time updates with SignalR, and new features in .NET 6 and Angular 13. You begin by building a data model with Entity Framework Core, alongside utilizing the Entity Core Fluent API and EntityTypeConfiguration class. You'll learn how to fetch and display data and handle user input with Angular reactive forms and front-end and back-end validators for maximum effect. Later, you will perform advanced debugging and explore the unit testing features provided by (.NET 6) and Jasmine, as well as Karma for Angular. After adding authentication and authorization to your apps, you will explore progressive web applications, learning about their technical requirements, testing processes, and how to convert a standard web application to a PWA. By the end of this web development book, you will understand how to tie together the front-end and back-end to build and deploy secure and robust web applications.

Real-time HTTP and Server Push

Providing real-time functionalities to a web application was a very complex task for the first two decades of the Internet, mostly due to the fact that the HTTP protocol was never meant for that. As we learned in Chapter 13, Beyond REST – Web API and GraphQL, when we briefly reviewed the REST principles and constraints distilled from the HTTP/1.0 and 1.1 specifications, there were no references to real-time communications, streaming protocols, server-initiated calls, or any other technique that might lead to something different from the pull-based request/response cycle initiated by a client request and handled by the server with a corresponding (and terminating) response.

For that very reason, for most of the ‘90s, the most effective ways to implement real-time behaviors in a web application were:

  • Using Java, Flash/ActionScript, or other “embeddable” content that could (A) support a suitable technology to achieve...
