ASP.NET Web API in Dofactory framework

Hi there,

Dofactory patterns N-Tier architecture is use as described below.

Hosting Layer
Service Layer
Business Layer
Data Layer

Service Layer using WCF -Restful implementation.

Now ASP.NET Web API may reduce the amount of work/implementation to develop RestFul services. I think that in N-Tier architecture service layer(Where WCF is used) can be replaced with Web API .

Your valuable comments/suggestions are appreciated.

The WCF element is replaced by WebAPI - you can then access from any clients

Thank you for your input William.

Do you mean to say that WCF in service layer can be replaced with ASP.NET Web API with rest of the layers as well?

Hosting layer
Business layer
Data layer

Please refer any references that follow above implementation or help.

Web Api can certainly be used in this way. A UI being implemented using HTML javascript, JQuery/Knockout on top of WebAPI would certainly be viable.
