Need help on OWIN and Katana for a non-expert

    Question

  • I am desperate for help in deploying a simple project to my server. I have been searching and bumbling for

    about two weeks and I am about where I started. The starting point I was provided was a link to the OWIN

    and KATANA project. I explored this path and while it seems comprehensive, I found it lacking in solving

    my problem. I've programmed for many years but am fairly new to the ASP environment. I've been able to

    get by on a server without formal deployment for some time now, but the owin phenomenon hit me just as I

    was ready to deploy a significant solution. So, I set about first trying to avoid the issue. There was a question posted on the tutorial inquiring

    what might be an alternative to employing OWIN authentication (Windows?).

    The answer might interest me but I could not obtain it readily. Then I set out to explore where I would

    add a setting that declares owin automatic startup discovery as "false". That was another question

    I could not resolve. It seems that you need to fully understand how OWIN works in order to disable it.

    Anyway I decided to try to follow the steps in the tutorial and became discouraged quickly when things

    did not proceed smoothly starting at step 2. I should note that I program in VB whereas this tutorial's

    example employs c#. Maybe that's a reason for the disconnect in step 2.

    That in itself did not discourage me, nor the fact that the step of adding the startup routine did not

    go as expected. It got harder when I plodded on. There seem to be only two sources to consider:

    The web.config file and the startup routine. I have designed a trivial application for the purpose

    of learning what OWIN is about. The original link is:http://www.asp.net/aspnet/overview/owin-and-katana/owin-startup-class-detection I will continue to beat my head against this problem until Iget some relief from anywhere.

    In the meanwhile I will post some direct questions as I go on but for now, can someone clarify the

    questions I raised above namely:

    Is there an alternative to OWIN startup, and if not, is there a simpler explanation of "startup" that may

    be more suitable for a non-expert VB user such as nyself?

  • Hi eps123,

    So this issue is related to the ASP.NET, am I right? If so, since the ASP.NET has his own supported forum, you could ask this question in the ASP.NET forum: http://forums.asp.net. If then, you could get an answer more quickly and professional. Thanks for your cooperation.

    Best Regards,
