在ASP.NET里运行定时任务,这是个老生常谈的话题了,撇开那些用per request搞定屌丝办法,目前最好的解决办法只有2种: 1. 如果你有大微软的Azure,可以直接在网站服务中找到Jobs,自己看一下就会了 2. 如果你是屌丝,买不起Azure,就用本文介绍的WebBackgrounder搞 由于ASP.NET是服务器端Web框架,所以一般而言,一个操作的往往是只有收到客户端Request之后才能执行的,如果网站一直没人访问,没有Request进来,如何执行代码呢?定时任务就是这种坑爹场景。 还好,大微软的MVC帝、ASP.NET小王子haacked蜀黍给我们写了个 http://www.nuget.org/packages/WebBackgrounder/ 专门捣鼓这种场景。作为一个屌丝程序猿,和大牛的区别就在于“好编程,不求甚解”。所以我们不必在意它是怎么实现的,只要会用就行 …
