ASP.NET API Versioning
The "Asp" project, more formally known as ASP.NET API Versioning, gives you a powerful, but easy-to-use method for adding API versioning semantics to your new and existing REST services built with ASP.NET. The API versioning extensions define simple metadata attributes and conventions that you use to describe which API versions are implemented by your services. You don't need to learn any new routing concepts or change the way you implement your services in ASP.NET today.
The default API versioning configuration is compliant with the versioning semantics outlined by the Microsoft REST Guidelines. There are also a number of customization and extension points available to support transitioning services that may not have supported API versioning in the past or supported API versioning with semantics that are different from the Microsoft REST versioning guidelines.
The supported flavors of ASP.NET are:
ASP.NET Web APIAdds API versioning to your Web API applications
ASP.NET Web API and ODataAdds API versioning to your Web API applications using OData v4.0
ASP.NET CoreAdds API versioning to your ASP.NET Core Minimal API applications
ASP.NET Core MVCAdds API versioning to your ASP.NET Core MVC (Core) applications
ASP.NET Core and ODataAdds API versioning to your ASP.NET Core applications using OData v4.0
This is also the home of the ASP.NET API versioning API explorers that you can use to easily document your REST APIs with OpenAPI:
ASP.NET Web API Versioned API ExplorerReplaces the default API explorer in your Web API applications
ASP.NET Web API with OData API ExplorerAdds an API explorer to your Web API applications using OData v4.0
ASP.NET Core Versioned API ExplorerAdds additional API explorer support to your ASP.NET Core applications
ASP.NET Core with OData API ExplorerAdds additional API explorer support to your ASP.NET Core applications using OData v4.0
The client-side libraries make it simple to create API version-aware HTTP clients.
