Custom lifetime scope per request in asp net core without dependencyresolver

Custom lifetime scope per request in ASP.NET Core without DependencyResolver

When developing applications in ASP.NET Core, it is often necessary to manage the lifetime of objects and dependencies. One common requirement is to have a custom lifetime scope per request, where objects are and disposed of within the scope of a single HTTP request. This can be achieved without using the DependencyResolver, which is the mechanism for dependencies in ASP.NET Core.

To implement a custom lifetime scope per request, we can leverage the -in injection container provided by ASP.NET Core. This container allows us to register and resolve dependencies throughout the application. However, by default, the container does not provide a way to manage the lifetime of objects per request.

To overcome this limitation, we can use the HttpContext provided by ASP.NET Core. The HttpContext class represents the context of an HTTP request and provides access to various properties and methods related to the current request. We can use the HttpContext class to store and retrieve objects within the scope of a single request.

Example:


public class CustomLifetimeScopeMiddleware
{
    private readonly RequestDelegate _next;

    public CustomLifetimeScopeMiddleware(RequestDelegate next)
    {
        _next = next;
    }

    public async Task InvokeAsync(HttpContext context)
    {
        // Create a new instance of the object within the scope of the current request
        var customObject = new CustomObject();

        // Store the object in the HttpContext
        context.Items["CustomObject"] = customObject;

        // Call the next middleware in the 
        await _next(context);

        // Dispose of the object  the request is complete
        if (customObject is IDisposable disposableObject)
        {
            disposableObject.Dispose();
        }
    }
}

In the above example, we have created a custom middleware called CustomLifetimeScopeMiddleware. This middleware is responsible for creating a new instance of the CustomObject class within the scope of each request. The CustomObject class can be any class that needs to be managed within the scope of a request.

Inside the InvokeAsync method of the middleware, we create a new instance of the CustomObject class and store it in the HttpContext.Items collection. This collection allows us to store and retrieve objects within the scope of a single request.

After storing the object in the HttpContext, we call the next middleware in the pipeline using the _next delegate. This ensures that the request continues to be processed by the remaining middleware components.

Finally, after the request is complete, we dispose of the object if it implements the IDisposable interface. This ensures that any held by the object are properly .

By using this approach, we can achieve a custom lifetime scope per request without relying on the DependencyResolver. This allows us to have more control over the lifetime of objects and dependencies in our ASP.NET Core applications.
