MVC programming model

ASP.NET MVC are three programming modes in one.

MVC is a use MVC (Model View Controller Model - View - Controller) design pattern to create a Web application:

  • Model (Model) represents the core of the application (such as a database record list).
  • View (View) to display data (database records).
  • Controller (Controller) processing the input (written to the database record).

MVC model while providing full control over HTML, CSS and JavaScript.


MVC pattern to define Web application with three logical layers:

Business layer (logic model)

Display layer (logical view)

Input Control (Logic Controller)

Model (model) is part of the application for processing the application data logic.
Generally responsible for the object model to access data in the database.

View (view) is part of the application process data displayed.
Usually view is based on the model data created.

Controller (Controller) is part of the application process user interaction.
Typically the controller is responsible for reading data from the view, the user input control and to transmit the data model.

MVC layering helps manage complex applications, because you can focus exclusively on one aspect at a time. For example, you can not rely on the case to focus on the business logic of the design view. But also allow testing of an application easier.

MVC also simplify the hierarchical grouping development. Different developers can develop simultaneously view, controller logic and business logic.
