ASP.NET MVC Development

The software development is becoming more and more complex with the passage of time. With increasing number of developers working on a single large project, it is required that the solution is split into various modules so that it easier to manage the project as a whole. The MVC architecture is one of the most effective techniques to do so. A web development company could create highly scalable and reliable business solutions for its clients by using this model for developing web solutions. MVC stands for Model View Controller and the meaning & significance of each of its word is explained below.


Model: Objects that are present in the RAM memory collectively form the Model. This data has been retrieved from the database and brought into the RAM memory for further processing.

View: The way data is presented on the screen is known as view. For static web pages the view comprises of objects stored on the server whereas for RIA (Rich Internet Application) it can reside on the machine at client’s end through various native data structures or JavaScript objects.

Controller: The controller refers to the requests and manages the responses for the application.

The MVC pattern allows developers to separately conduct the development of business logic and the GUI of the software. Thus, both designers and developers can work simultaneously on the project without disturbing the part concerned with the other one. An experienced .Net MVC development company can effectively use it for developing robust solutions that provide flawless performance. Further, it also facilitates quick development of solutions which provides better opportunities for both client and the service provider.
