ASP.NET Integration with IIS7 Article

Since its release, ASP.NET has been the platform of choice for developing web applications on the Windows / IIS platform. ASP.NET 2.0 took web application development to a whole new level, letting developers build more powerful apps faster than ever before.

IIS7 takes ASP.NET to the next level, by integrating the ASP.NET runtime extensibility model with the core server. This allows developers to fully extend the IIS server with the richness of ASP.NET 2.0 and the .NET Framework, instead of using the lower level IIS C++ APIs. Existing ASP.NET applications also immediately benefit from tighter integration, by being able to use existing ASP.NET features like Forms Authentication, Roles, and Output Caching for all types of content.

While IIS7 provides the improved ASP.NET integration by default, the choice is yours: IIS7 supports both the new and the old ASP.NET integration modes that can be used side by side on the same server.

This article discusses the improvements introduced by the new ASP.NET integration mode, the architecture of the two modes, and describes how to select and configure the integration modes for ASP.NET applications.
