ASP.NET (C#) Question

Application_Start() & Application_End() methods are not fired in startup.cs class in asp.net MVC 5

There is no Global.aspx.cs class in ASP.NET MVC 5 application where I can have the methods

Application_Start()
and
Application_End()
.

Is there any way to invoke these methods in MVC 5 application?

You can manually add Global.asax to your project as mentioned here.

Otherwise, you can use Configuration(IAppBuilder app) or constructor in your Startup.cs. Configuration is called "slightly later" than Application_Start as mentioned in detail here.
