Creating an HTTP Service with Web API: Listing 2

RegisterRoutes() modified for using built-in test client.

    Shared Sub RegisterRoutes(ByVal routes As RouteCollection)

        routes.IgnoreRoute("{resource}.axd/{*pathInfo}")

        Dim config = New HttpConfiguration() With {.EnableTestClient = True}

        'routes.Add must be addded prior to the routes.MapRoute() because the Inventory API does not correspond to
 a controller+action combination.
        routes.Add(New ServiceRoute("InventoryWebAPIs/Inventory", New HttpServiceHostFactory() With {.Configuration =
 config}, GetType(InventoryAPI)))

        ' MapRoute takes the following parameters, in order:
        ' (1) Route name
        ' (2) URL with parameters
        ' (3) Parameter defaults
        routes.MapRoute( _
            "Default", _
            "{controller}/{action}/{id}", _
            New With {.controller = "Home", .action = "Index", .id = UrlParameter.Optional} _
        )

    End Sub
