When writing a simple HTTP handler in .Net, the framework provides support for replacing the default HTTP Handler Factory with your own factory which provides support for dependency injection.
The framework exposes an interface called
IHttpHandlerFactory which you will
need to implement with the code for your custom factory.
The HTTP Handler Factory
Here’s one I prepared earlier that will return HTTP handlers based on the name the classed were registered with in Castle Windsor.
It makes the assumption that your
HttpApplication class in
exposes the container, via the IContainerAccessor interface.
Wiring it in
You will need to add an entry in your
web.config file that tells the framework
to use your factory to satisfy HTTP requests.
This will register the extension .sample to have it’s requests satisfied by the class that Castle Windsor believes is appropriate to handle that request based on the logic in your handler factory.
More details for how to do this can be found on the MSDN article on creating and registering HTTP handler factories
