The HttpHandler

Now we have a handler which should be working correctly. To test this out we should run our web application project and then navigate to anything followed by .hello, and then our handler should take over execution and handle the request.

Here is what it looks like when our example SimpleHandler is used to handle a request.

Figure 4: Viewing the Handler


A fairly simple way to handle this, but it works quite well.

The final code in this example can be downloaded from the following link. I will also include the few lines of the SimpleHandler class here.

Listing 6: Final SimpleHandler

using System.Web;
namespace RollYourOwnHttpHandler
    public class SimpleHandler : IHttpHandler
        public SimpleHandler()
        #region IHttpHandler Members
        public bool IsReusable
            get { return true; }
        public void ProcessRequest(HttpContext context)
            context.Response.Write("<html><head><title>Hi there!</title></head>" + 
                "<body>Hello world!</body></html>");
