Sharing Authorization Cookies between ASP.NET 4.x and ASP.NET Core 1.0

Scott Hanselman’s Blog. 2016-10-2.
ASP.NET Core 1.0 is out, as is .NET Core 1.0 and lots of folks are making great cross-platform web apps. These are Web Apps that are built on .NET Core 1.0 and run on Windows, Mac, or Linux.
However, some people don’t realize that ASP.NET Core 1.0 (that’s the web framework bit) runs on either .NET Core or .NET Framework 4.6 aka “Full Framework.”

Consuming WCF service in Core

Microsoft introduced an update to the WCF Connected Service Preview for generating SOAP service references for clients built on top of WCF for .NET Core RC2.
To consume a WCF Service, first you need to install the WCF Connected Service extension.You can download and install WCF Connected Service extension using Extensions and Updates feature from Tools. Or you can download it from Visual Studio Gallery.
Please make sure you are installing the required prerequisites, otherwise it may not install successfully.
Once the installation is completed successfully, you can create a new ASP.NET Project and consume the service. This tool retrieves metadata from a WCF service in the current solution, locally or on a network, and generates a .NET Core 1.0.0 compatible source code file for a WCF client proxy that you can use to access the service.

AJAX Requests in React: How and Where to Fetch Data

Dave Ceddia. CodeProject. 2016-09-14.
One of the first questions new React developers have is, “How do I do AJAX requests in React?”
Here’s an answer to that question.
First: React itself doesn’t have any allegiance to any particular way of fetching data. In fact, as far as React is concerned, it doesn’t even know there’s a “server” in the picture at all.
React simply renders components, using data from only two places: props and state.
So therefore, to use some data from the server, you need to get that data into your components’ props or state.
You can complicate this process with services and data models (er, “build abstractions”) as much as you desire, but ultimately it’s just components rendering props and state.
