A First Look at Microsoft Internet Information Services 7.0.
Contributed by: G3nu1n3, at 2/02/2005 07:28:00 PM.

Componentization and ASP.NET integration are among the many new features coming up in the next version of Internet Information Services.

Microsoft's next-generation Web server, Internet Information Services (IIS) 7.0, isn't due for release until Longhorn ships sometime in 2006.

But it's a good idea for Web developers to start thinking about the changes IIS 7.0 will bring, said Bill Staples, group program manager of Microsoft's Internet Information Services (IIS) and Web Platform and Tools Team, and Mary Alice Colvin, product manager for IIS and the entire IIS development team. In fact, the IIS 7.0 beta program is set to start sometime this year.

Top 6 Features in IIS 7.0

IIS 7.0 is taking the next big step in terms of extensibility, unification with ASP.NET, improved diagnostics, and a new admin user interface and configuration system. Here are some of the great new features in IIS 7.0:

  • Modularized Webcore allows you to add and remove functionality based on your needs. If you only want to serve static content, you need only a few modules (and not ISAPI, for example).
  • A unified HTTP pipeline for native and managed applications alike. You'll be able to use forms-based authentication for classic ASP pages.
  • You can build your own IHttpModule and IHttpHandlers, and plug them into the unified pipeline.
  • A new, distributed XML configuration system that takes advantage of ASP.NET's configuration system.
  • Improved diagnostics and troubleshooting, including new runtime state and tracing features.
  • A new, extensible, task-oriented admin user interface.

    The most important of these is the componentization of IIS. All of IIS's functions will be specific components that you can turn on or off at your leisure. This means that when you install the Web server, you'll be able to add only the functionality you need, one piece at a time.

    Very important for developers to note is the IIS programming model will change. Today, added functionality to IIS is created through the addition of Internet service APIs or ISAPI filters. Because of its complete integration with ASP.NET and the other core components of the .NET Framework, IIS programming will no longer require the creation of ISAPI filters. In fact, the HttpModules and HttpHandlers in IIS will use a single pipeline for all requests in both native (or Win32) and managed (or .NET) interfaces. This will greatly simplify IIS and ASP.NET programming.
