MVC support in ASP.NET 3.5 Extensions Preview

Posted by dariosantarelli on December 20, 2007


The ASP.NET 3.5 Extensions Preview is a new release that provides new functionality being added to ASP.NET 3.5 and ADO.NET in 2008. This release delivers a set of new features that target:

  • MVC support
  • Entity Framework
  • ADO.NET Data Services
  • ASP.NET Dynamic data
  • TDD (Test Driven Development)
  • Rich Clients creation  (Ajax and Silverlight controls for ASP.NET )

I’m particularly interested in ASP.NET MVC support to the existing ASP.NET 3.5 runtime, because it enables developers to more easily take advantage of design patterns. Benefits include the ability to achieve and maintain a clear separation of concerns, as well as facilitate test driven development (TDD).
A great new feature is that the designer now supports the Controllers. Moreover, by default our project contains structured folders like Content, Controllers, View. COOL!!!
