We decided to create a "homemade" DD4T template to have the Tridion API & an ASP.NET MVC 4 website (the current template contains contains an ASP.NET MVC 3 website)

I added /lib & /config folders inside the /bin folder with .jar & .xml files required (license included)

My projects are named Test.Web.DD4T & Test.Web.UI

Here is the source code producing the error :

(From PageController which inherits from TridionControllerBase) :

public override ActionResult Page(string pageId){
return base.Page(pageId);}

Here is the stack trace :

Do you have any idea to solve it ?

Make sure you also have the Tridion DLLs including the Tridion.ContentDelivery.* DLLs in your BIN folder.

It sounds like you haven't set up the dependency resolver properly.

Have a look at my post here for how to do it with Ninject: http://blog.building-blocks.com/using-ninject-with-dd4t

Alternatively look at the DD4T example solution for the same in Unity.

Can you provide a bit more detail about how you've set up your .net solution to handle pages and components?

Robert's answer mentions

'Alternatively look at the DD4T example solution for the same in Unity'

  • There's a sample website showing the configuration of the page controller (using unity) at the following url:
