Developing .NET Core 2.0 Web Applications on OpenShift

Today we’re going to create a .NET Core 2.0 Web Application using the JBoss Developer Studio and the aCute plugin (C# application development). We’ll deploy our application onto an OpenShift instance and continue to modify it while viewing the changes almost instantly. Although the initial setup will be quite involved, it will only need to be done once.

Remote debug your ASP.NET Core container on OpenShift with Visual Studio Code

Visual Studio provides a graphical remote debugging ASP.NET Core app with Docker Tools for Windows. Since Visual Studio supports SSH protocol, you can remote debug ASP.NET Core process running on the Linux host. It used to be if you install and setup SSH server on docker container, you can remote debug with Visual Studio. However, it’s strongly not recommended due to security reasons. Now I’ll explain to you how to remote debug your ASP.NET Core on OpenShift with Visual Studio Code by using oc exec command instead of installing SSH server on docker container. You can use Microsoft proprietary debugger engine vsdbg with Visual Studio Code (or other Visual Studio products). Visual Studio Code can integrate other commands than SSH for debugger transport protocol.

ASP.NET Core Hello World Explained

Most books teaching C# start with a ‘Hello World’ application. This simple program is used to explain concepts like namespaces, classes, Main and Console.WriteLine. When every line of the code has been dissected, it’s clear how it works.

It’s less obvious for an ASP.NET Core application. We are no longer invoking our code; instead, the ASP.NET Core framework is doing that for us. In this blog post, we’ll look at a simple ASP.NET Core application and explain how ASP.NET Core makes it tick.

D-Bus is a Linux message bus system. Many system daemons (like systemd, PulseAudio, bluez) and desktop services can be controlled via D-Bus. Some applications can be reached via the global system bus and others are on a per-user-login-session bus.
