The UrlRoutingModule class matches an HTTP request to a route in an ASP.NET application. The module iterates through all the routes in the RouteCollection property and searches for a route that has a URL pattern that matches the format of the HTTP request. When the module finds a matching route, it retrieves the IRouteHandler object for that route. From the route handler, the module gets an IHttpHandler object and uses that as the HTTP handler for the current request.
