Exception handling in projects which uses Ajax, ASP.NET, Http Module, MVC3 and Http Handlers

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Dear All,

I am working on a project where we have used few of the web application plateforms & techniques. I need to build a robust exception handling framework for my applications that handles all type of exceptions i.e server exception, unhandled exception, http module exception and custom raised exception etc.

In our projects,

1) we have static ASP.net pages (without code behind) for jQuery menus which uses jquery ajax and custom HttpHandler to fetch the data from the server.

2) some aspx pages load and save application data using jQuery ajax and custom httpHandlers.

3) some functionalities are developed in MVC3 which uses strongly and non strongly type views. Strongly type view save the data through controller on page submit and non strongly type view used jQuery ajax and json to save the data from controller.

4) We are also using HttpModule in our web site to authenticate the user.


Please guide me how to handle exception from multiple sources and display custom error message to the user from asp.net pages and jquery ajax calls?

Problem Adding Custom HTTP Module with Ajax(System.Web.Handlers.ScriptModule)



I have Created a custom Module for my application. It works fine when i am testing on a sample website.

But when i integrated the same with the original application it dosent works fine. Actully i am using Ajax control toolkit and it uses its own module for request processing.System.Web.Handlers.ScriptModule.

Hence my handlers section becomes something like this :

      <add name="ScriptModule" type="System.Web.Handlers.ScriptModule, System.Web.Extensions, Version=1.0.61025.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35" />
      <add type="MyModule, MyModule,Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=ba11cfdfb1d1111b" name="SiteMinderHttpModule" />

 Now i think my module working fine but because of it there is some hinderence caused in the Ajax request processing.I get the error sys is undefined.

I have created a class library Project and implemented the iHTTPModule interface and then registered the assembly in GAC and then accessing the assembly from there..

Is there any work around for this problem as my page is not rendering properly.


Please Help.

ASP.NET Architecture - ASP.NET Worker Process - HTTP Pipleline - Http Modules and Handlers

"ASP.NET is a powerful platform for building Web applications, that provides a tremendous amount of flexibility and power for building just about any kind of Web application. Most people are familiar only with the high level frameworks like WebForms and WebServices which sit at the very top level of the ASP.NET hierarchy. In this article I'll describe the lower level aspects of ASP.NET and explain how requests move from Web Server to the ASP.NET runtime and then through the ASP.NET Http Pipeline to process requests.

I want to create another http module that will handle our customize URL redirects. Now I want this new customize http module to be call before the UrlRewriter module (to avoid page not found messages the UrlRewriter generates). Is there a way we can contol the calling order ?

Rewriter http module problem in IIS 7

I had this problem a few months ago however this time I cannot seem to fix it.The module uses redirection rules read from a database to redirect non-exisistant pages.  However I get resource cannot be found errors in IIS 7.IIRC the last time I simply set the application pool to classic and the redirecting worked.  I assumed doing this again would fix the problem. However it doesn't.  When I change the application pool for the site to  ASP.NET v4.0 Classic I get this error "Handler "PageHandlerFactory-ISAPI-4.0_32bit" has a bad module "IsapiModule" in its module list".The project has recently been upgraded to use v4 of the framework (it was v2 previously). What should I be looking at to try and solve this problem.

HTTP Handlers


Hi All,

I am attempting to convert an ASP.NET handler into SharePoint.

I have an ASP.NET handler which redirects users from index.html to default.aspx. I need to get this happening inside SharePoint. I have followed the MSDN article http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb457204.aspx to try and get it running.

I can call my ASHX page directly (http://portal/_layout/test/indexhttphandler.ashx, but i can not get the page to be called from a web request, That is http://portal/index.html, i get a 404.

How do I get the page to be called?

Http Modules and the Http handlers in asp.net 4


I am using IIS 7 .when I tried to migrate  to asp.net 4 , the VS 2010  has removed the following tag on conversion .if I opened a web application  in 3.5 framework ,the following tag is added inside the Web.config file ,if i opened a asp.net4 application  the following tag is not added.

<validation validateIntegratedModeConfiguration="true" />

I know this tag is basically used when the application is running under the  Integrated mode.

Is this tag is required in asp.net 4 .Do we still need to configure the Http Modules and the Http handlers under the sytem.webserver in the Web.config?

Any suggestions are welcome

Global.Asax - Web.Http Exception
