ASP.NET WebForms vs ASP.NET MVC

Filed under: Programming — Tags: — pranaslu @ 18:36

From book “Pro ASP.NET MVC Framework”:

Chapter1: What’s the big idea?

ASP.NET MVC is designed to tackle the specific shortcomings of traditional ASP .NET WebForms, but this time by trying to emphasize simplicity.

WebForms is a giant abstraction layer aimed to deliver a classic event-driven GUI over the Web.

WebForms weaknesses:

  • ViewState
  • Page life cycle
  • Limited control over HTML
  • False sense of separation of concerns
  • Untestable.

Key benefits of ASP.NET MVC:

  • Model-View-Controller Architecture
  • Extensibility
  • Testability
  • Tight Control over HTML
  • Powerful New Routing System
  • Built on the Best Parts of the ASP.NET Platform
  • .NET 3.5 Language Innovations
  • ASP.NET MVC Is Open Source
