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.

Introducing ASP.NET Core health checks

We called our first project HealthCheck for a reason: the web app we’re about to build will act as a monitoring and reporting service that will check the health status of a target server—and/or its infrastructure—and show it on screen in real time.

In order to do that, we’re going to make good use of the Microsoft.AspNetCore.Diagnostics.HealthChecks package, a built-in feature of the ASP.NET Core framework first introduced in 2.2, refined and improved for the ASP.NET Core 3 release and still available up to the current .NET version. This package is meant to be used to allow a monitoring service to check the status of another running service—for example, another web server—which is precisely what we’re about to do.

For additional information about ASP.NET Core health checks, we strongly suggest reading the official MS documentation at the following URL:
