What is: ASP.NET MVC Framework

According to Microsoft's ASP.NET site:

ASP.NET MVC provides a framework that enables you to easily implement the model-view-controller (MVC) pattern for Web applications. This pattern lets you separate applications into loosely coupled, pluggable components for application design, processing logic, and display.

ASP.NET MVC is not a replacement for Webforms. It provides an alternative choice when designing a Web application. Using ASP.NET MVC offers the following advantages:

  • It enables you to achieve and maintain a clear separation of concerns
  • It facilitates test driven development (TDD)
  • It provides more control over the URLs you publish in the application and over the HTML that is emitted by the application
