Overview

In this book, world-renowned ASP.NET expert and member of the Microsoft ASP.NET team Stephen Walther shows experienced developers how to use Microsoft’s new ASP.NET MVC Framework to build web applications that are more powerful, flexible, testable, manageable, scalable, and extensible.

Writing for professional programmers, Walther explains the crucial concepts that make the Model-View-Controller (MVC) development paradigm work so well and shows exactly how to apply them with the ASP.NET MVC Framework. From controllers and actions to views and models, Walther demonstrates how to apply each ASP.NET MVC Framework feature in real-world projects.

In Part II, you’ll walk step-by-step through building a full-fledged ASP.NET MVC blog application that implements capabilities ranging from data access to validation. Through this case study, you’ll learn how to build ASP.NET MVC applications using test-driven development processes that enable rapid feedback, greater productivity, and better quality.

Throughout, Walther presents extensive code examples, reflecting his unsurpassed experience as an ASP.NET instructor, a leading commercial developer, and now as a member of Microsoft’s ASP.NET development team.

Understand how to:

  • Build enterprise-scale web applications far more rapidly and effectively
  • Develop web applications that are easier to maintain and extend over time
  • Gain unprecedented control over the appearance of your website or application
  • Expose intuitive URLs that are friendlier to search engines and users alike
  • Create ASP.NET MVC models that contain all your application’s business, validation, and data access logic
  • Make the most of HTML helpers, model binders, action filters, routing, and authentication
  • Efficiently deploy your ASP.NET MVC applications
  • Use the lightweight JQuery JavaScript library to easily find and manipulate HTML elements
  • Create ASP.NET MVC applications using unit test and mock object framework

Have you ever read the book "ASP .Net Unleashed" by the same author and did you like it ? If so, you will like this book by the same author. The author explains MVC by simple examples using understandable sources. The topics covered includes : Controller, Views, Models, HTML Helpers, Action Filters, Model Binders (Default, Custom), Action Routers, View Engine etc. Also the author introduces concepts like Unit Testing, Mocking, Good software design principles like DRY, SOLID, Repository design pattern etc. There is a couple of chapter explaining jQuery and AJAX. I also like the appendix which explains the new language features in Visual C++ which are fundamental for MVC framework, and the tools like mocking tool etc. After introducing the MVC concepts the author then moves to the second part where he is creating a Blog application from the scratch reinforcing the concepts we learnt in the first part. Overall I would recomment this book to everyone as it helps in understanding MVC clearly by using simple examples.
