What is HttpHandler class in mvc?

A HTTP handler is the process that runs in response to a request made to an Web application which can be an Asp.net Web APS or Asp.net MVC. We can think of it as an endpoint through which the request/response mechanism will pass through between as browser and Web Server like IIS/Apache Tomcat etc.

When do we use it?

Going ahead with Http Handler ensures more control over the request/response pattern since programatically we can intercept the request/response for specific content types which on the other hand brings more security.

How to use it? (not asked)

Here is an example for a Http Handler for image (http://patrickdesjardins.com/blog/how-to-create-a-httphandler-with-asp-mvc ).

Hope this will be helpful.
