I am looking for the Advice with a project that is in the planing stages.
I need to Build a JSON REST API so we can integrate an internal system that we are developing with our ERP(Netsuite). I program in and am looking for advice on what framework to use and were i can find examples that I can learn from. Performance is reasonably important to us if that helps.

All help and advice is very much appreciated.


What I have tried:

have built a system in witch we used WCF so did try to convert this example to VB without success. Create RESTful WCF Service API: Step By Step Guide[^]

have read up on ServiceStack but cant find any documentation on how to use in VB.

Thanks for you Reply Graeme_Grant,
Just Server Side.

Use WCF, that's not the only example out there, look for articles on MSDN as they will have samples too.

I'd be inclined to use WebAPI[^] or Nancy[^] rather than WCF.

But you'll need to get used to the fact that you're more likely to find samples and documentation in C# than VB.NET - it's generally easy to convert between the two, so most authors only provide code in a single language.

Like Richard has mentioned, WebAPI[^] would be the best ASP.NET option. Here is a quuick guide to setting it up and trying it out: Token Based Authentication using ASP.NET Web API 2, Owin, and Identity - Bit of Technology[^]
