ASP.NET MVC Framework

by: Mattias Nordgren

In my past I used to run a consultant firm where I was the lead programmer and for one of the bigger projects I was involved in I used the FuseBox MVC framework in creating a large scale e-commerce solution. This was my first contact with the MVC architectural design pattern. I was really impressed how the MVC design pattern helped me design and develop such a complex solution in a short period of time. Even if it was my first experience with MVC I really could understand how the development could benefit from using this architecture. Read more about MVC at Wikipedia.

If you are familiar with Ruby on Rails, it is also using the MVC design pattern.

Now when I got back from my paternity leave, I was really glad to see that Scott Guthrie and his team is releasing bits and pieces of the upcoming ASP.NET MVC Framework. If you're not familiar with MVC, please read on in Scott Guthries excellent blog posts.

ASP.NET MVC Framework (introduction)

ASP.NET MVC Framework (Part 1)

ASP.NET MVC Framework (Part 2): URL Routing

ASP.NET MVC Framework (Part 3): Passing ViewData from Controllers to Views

ASP.NET MVC Framework (Part 4): Handling Form Edit and Post Scenarios


As soon as possible I'll try to have a chat with the EPiServer architects in order to see how EPiServer developers can benefit (or not?) from the ASP.NET MVC framework.

  1. Great, I was waiting for someone at EPiServer to start mentioning the MVC Framework. If you succeed with combining the strengths of these two products, you're gonna rock!
  2. any news on support for MVC
  3. Hi Tim, No, I don't have any news regarding MVC at this time. We're running a lot of interesting projects at this time but I don't have any details to share at this moment. However, Allan Thraen of EPiServer Researched blogged about EPiServer CMS and MVC; please take a look here:
