Through the years, ASP.NET team have been releasing new ASP.NET SessionState and OutputCache providers to help developers make their web applications ready for the cloud environment. Today we are announcing a new OutputCache provider, Microsoft.AspNet.OutputCache.CosmosDBTableAsyncOutputCacheProvider, to enable your applications store the OutputCache data into CosmosDB.
Provider pattern was introduced in ASP.NET 2.0 and it gives the developers the flexibility of where to store the state of ASP.NET features (e.g. Session State, Membership, Output Cache etc.). In ASP.NET 4.6.2, we added async support for Session State Provider and Output Cache Provider.
With the availability of .Net Core RC2 and ASP.NET Core RC2 we are pleased to announce an update to the WCF Connected Service Preview for ASP.NET 5 Visual Studio extension tool for generating SOAP service references for clients built on top of WCF for .NET Core RC2.
