HttpModules and supported state of a SharePoint installation

Apr 16, 2013 at 10:01 PM
Someone once told me, that you will loose support from Microsoft when you use HttpModules with SharePoint.

It is, however, listed under best practices for SharePoint 2007. ( http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb862635(v=office.12).aspx ) So I think it should be ok.

Does anyone know more about this? Will my SharePoint server still be in a supported state, if I use HttpModules?

I know this is an old one but:

I doubt that you loose support - I use SPWebConfigModification as supported way to change the web.config.

On the other hand: You can now use the self hosted signalr (owin) without changing anything in your sharepoint.
