Creating ASP.NET MVC 4 Project with RavenDB

In this section we will go over the steps to creating you own ASP.NET MVC4 Application.

Prerequisites

1) Make sure you have the Microsoft ASP.NET MVC 4 installed.
2) You have installed NuGet package manager 3) You are running Visual Studio 2010 or greater

Step by Step Instructions

1) Open the Micrsooft Visual Studio IDE. Create a new "ASP.NET MVC 4 Web Application" project.
2) As Project template select "Basic".
3) Add the NuGet Package named "RavenDB Client".
4) Create the following controller:

public abstract class RavenController : Controller
{
	public static IDocumentStore DocumentStore
	{
		get { return DocumentStoreHolder.Store; }
	}

	public IDocumentSession RavenSession { get; protected set; }

	protected override void OnActionExecuting(ActionExecutingContext filterContext)
	{
		RavenSession = DocumentStoreHolder.Store.OpenSession();
	}

	protected override void OnActionExecuted(ActionExecutedContext filterContext)
	{
		if (filterContext.IsChildAction)
			return;

		using (RavenSession)
		{
			if (filterContext.Exception != null)
				return;

			if (RavenSession != null)
				RavenSession.SaveChanges();
		}

		TaskExecutor.StartExecuting();
	}

	protected HttpStatusCodeResult HttpNotModified()
	{
		return new HttpStatusCodeResult(304);
	}

	protected ActionResult Xml(XDocument xml, string etag)
	{
		return new XmlResult(xml, etag);
	}

	protected new JsonResult Json(object data)
	{
		return base.Json(data, JsonRequestBehavior.AllowGet);
	}
}

5) From now on, write you application as you would normally, but make any controller that needs to talk to RavenDB inherit from RavenController.

Example of a controller:

public class HomeController : RavenController
{
	//
	// GET: /Home/

	public ActionResult Index()
	{
		var items = RavenSession.Query<SampleData>().ToList();
		return View("Index", items);
	}

	public ActionResult Add(string name)
	{
		var sampleData = new SampleData { CreatedAt = SystemTime.UtcNow, Name = name };
		RavenSession.Store(sampleData);
		return RedirectToAction("Edit", new { id = sampleData.Id });
	}

	public ActionResult Edit(int id)
	{
		var sampleData = RavenSession.Load<SampleData>(id);
		return View("Index", new List<SampleData> { sampleData });
	}
}
