What leads you to believe you need an ASP.NET WebAPI? It doesn't seem warranted, which coupled be done by a class/object without using WebAPI.

Hi @durgavalliammai-7801,

An application programming interface (API) is an interface that defines interactions between multiple software applications or mixed hardware-software intermediaries.

  • Reference to Web APIs is currently the most common use of the term.

If you need a Web Service and don’t need SOAP, then ASP.NET Web API is best choice.Based on HTTP, it is easy to define, expose and use in a REST-ful way.
