Classes that Implement IHttpAsyncHandler

Class Description
HttpApplication Defines the methods, properties, and events common to all application objects within an ASP.NET application. This class is the base class for applications defined by the user in the global.asax file.


An IHttpAsyncHandler class can be associated with a file name extension or a particular URL by a configuration file, in the <httpHandlers> section. The ASP.NET infrastructure will then instantiate and call the handler when the corresponding request is received. Alternatively, the handler can be defined in an .ashx file and when the corresponding request is received for the .ashx file the hander will get executed.
