Many improvements were seen in this .NET Framework by Microsoft through its main purpose of designing, testing, maintainability, clean structure, etc.

  • Model is representing the application part and implements the data logic.
  • View is representing the User interface part and display data on browser using Controller part.
  • Controller is classes. In this part collect user Request.

Easy to manage and test because every functionality is a separated part of Model, View and Controller.

Some important features added in this framework:

  • ASP.NET Web API.
  • Default HTML5 templates for Visual Studio and Mobile Application.
  • Automatic selection of rendered views means application auto set in Desktop/Mobile/tablet browser.
  • jQuery Mobile.
  • Microsoft Windows Azure SDK support for deploying ASP.NET MVC applications to Windows Azure.
  • Social site authentication like Facebook.
