Added error handling around default value determination for members in in Open API documentation.
2.0.10 - 5/21/2022
Operations that return Task<T> (async) are now handled properly in Swagger/OpenAPI features.
Parameters on GET operations that are not configured with attributes are now still handled properly (based on the default values the attributes would provide).
Default values (where available and applicable) are now indiated in the OpenAPI definition.
2.0.8 - 5/11/2022
Minimum target version is now .NET 6
Newtonsoft.json dependency has been removed.
Services now support Open API (“Swagger”) through app.UseOpenApiHandler()
Generic documentation is generated from the structure defined in the type system.
This includes an extended version of loading descriptions and other documentation from XML docs as well as a variety of attributes to fine-tune how the documentation is generated.
There now is a new FileResponse default response type that can be used to return raw files from services. This is especially useful when returning things like images (or other large data files) from a service, which can be hanled as raw data in HTTP requests (although they are handled like all other contracts in other protocols/standards) and are therefore more efficient. Plus, such service can directly serve up things such as images that are referred to as the src in <img> tags.
ServiceClient.Call<>() has ben updated ot transparently support FileResponse if called from C#.
BaseServiceResponse.Success now defaults to true again (as was the case in full framework versions). This means that this flag does not have to be set in most scenarios unless there is a problem. Since standard exception handling will automatically create responses with this flag (if present in the response) set to false, most developers may never have to set this manually.
There now is a new [StandardExceptionHandling] attribute that can be attached to individual operations/methods, service implementation classes, and service interfaces. If present, CODE Framework will automatically perform a try/catch around the service method and populate a response message with Success set to false and FailureInformation populated with exception information (assuming these properties are present in the response message).
ServiceGardenLocal now can act as a dependency injection container (IoC container) to support dependency injection in in-process hosted services.
Services hosted in-process (in ServiceGardenLocal) now also support the [StandardExceptionHandling] attribute to provide behavior that is identical to that of services hosted in other environments.
1.5.15 - 12/15/2021
Minimum target version is now .NET 5 (pushed to the next version)
Removed dependency on Newtonsoft.Json (pushed to the next version)
Date handling for REST URL parameters in ServiceClient has been changed to conform with ISO 8601.
Re-enabled support for passing a service URL into ServiceClient.Call(). This is only supported in REST scenarios.
Removed dependency on Westwind.Utilities
1.5.13 - 12/20/2020
Improved the Mapper.Collections() method to be able to handle collection items that require a back-link constructor parameter (back-link to the parent collection).
The options object for Mapper.Collections() now supports an AddTargetCollectionItem delegate, which can be used to define custom code that adds elements to the target collection, which is useful when that collection doesn't just support a simple target.Add(item) or needs other custom handling.
1.5.7 - 5/15/2020
All the To...Safe() methods of the DataHelper class have been improved to handle null values more efficiently.
1.5.6 - 5/14/2020
Fixed a problem in StringHelper related to retrieving just the file name within a string (path) on Linux.
Made ServiceHelper configurable so ServiceHelper.GetPopulatedFailureResponse will only return extended debug information when the static ShowExtendedFailureInformation is manually set to true. (Automatic detection of whether a service runs in a debug environment turned out to not be reliable enough and could sometimes return extended information in runtime environments).
1.5.4 - 2/24/2020
Fixed CSV sub-system bugs that were introduced in the move from .NET Framework to .NET Core.
1.5.3 - 2/11/2020
The Mapper class (mapping framework) has received an overhaul.
The Mapper class now supposed a new MappingOptions.LogMappedMembers property, which, when set to true (which happens automatically in debug builds, but can be overridden) populates MappedSourceProperties, MappedDestinationProperties, IgnoredSourceProperties, and IgnoredDestinationProperties, which are useful in seeing which properties/members are actually included in a mapping operation. (This is especially useful in development/debug scenarios, which is why this feature is enabled in debug builds automatically).
The MappingOptions class now has an AddMap() convenience method.
Added MarkupHelper static class to CODE.Framework.Fundamentals.Utilities namespace (CODE.Framework.Fundamentals package).
Added MarkdownHelper static class to CODE.Framework.Fundamentals.Utilities namespace (CODE.Framework.Fundamentals package).
1.2.0 - 12/27/2019
Switched all JSON Serialization/Deserialization from JSON.NET to System.Text.Json
JSON operations are now async.
Added AzureLogger to log message whenever an app or service runs in Azure.
Handling some scenarios related to .NET Core 3 sync/async operations.
Supporting .NET Core 3.0
1.0.7. - 10/10/2019
Changes to service contract package to fix bugs.
Supporting a new ServiceClient:LogCommunicationErrors configuration setting (and LogCommunicationErrors property on the ServiceClient class) to optionally log additional information on failed REST calls.
1.0.2 - 1.0.6
Internal builds with minor fixes.
1.0.1 - 6/24/2019
Added DataHelper support to .NET Core version
Added Mapper support to the .NET Core version
1.0.0 - 6/20/2019
CODE Framework Core components aimed at hosting services in .NET Core and Docker have now been made available as preview versions of NuGet packages. (See also: Understanding Services in .NET Core)
