The Model-View-Controller or MVC is an architectural design pattern that divides a web app into three main components: Model, View and Controller. The ASP.NET MVC framework acts as an alternative for the ASP.NET Web forms which were earlier used for creating web applications. The good thing about MVC is it's lightweight, presentable, and highly testable framework which comes pre-loaded with existing ASP.NET features like master pages & membership-based authentication.

Well, MVC is a standard design pattern which is pretty much common about the developers. In a very less time, the .NET MVC development has benefited millions of small and big web applications. But still, plenty of internet apps depend on the traditional ASP.NET structure that has web forms and postbacks. With the right approach, you can quickly take your site to greater heights.

When to Create an MVC Application

Before you develop a web app, make sure you carefully select either the ASP.NET MVC framework or the ASP.NET web forms model. This latest MVC framework does not replace the web forms model' thus you have to settle down with the simple internet applications. In case, you already have an existing web forms-based applications then these will continue to work exactly the way they use to.

It will be good that you weigh the advantages of each framework before deploying any one of them. Given below are the benefits of an MVC-Based web application:

  • It becomes easier for the developers to manage the complexity of the app by dividing it into the model, the view, and the controller.
  • ASP.NET MVC doesn't use view state or server-based forms which make the MVC ideal for .NET developers who want to gain full control over the behavior of an application.
  • It uses the Front Controller patterns that quickly processes web app request via a single controller.
  • It provides better support for test-driven development (TDD).
  • The ASP.NET MVC structure works well with the apps which are backed up by the huge team of designers & developers.

Advantages of a Web Forms-Based Web Application

  • It properly supports the event model that preserves state over HTTP. These web-based forms offer dozens of events that support hundreds of server controls.
  • Uses page controller pattern to add functionality to single pages.
  • It utilizes view state on the server-based forms, which has made the information management very much easier.
  • Suitable for apps which have a small team of developers and designers.
  • In general, Web forms-based apps are less complex to develop, because the components are tightly integrated and require less code compared to the MVC model.


The ASP.NET MVC framework is the latest addition to the web development technology and with the help of a reliable .NET developer or firm you can integrate all features of the ASP.NET MVC in your web application.
