Microsoft ASP.NET MVC (model/view/controller) is a relatively new Web application framework that combines ASP.NET's power and ease of use with the stability and testability of a MVC framework. The much-anticipated version 2 release brings new capabilities to the framework along with numerous additions that enhance developer productivity. In ASP.NET MVC 2 in Action, readers learn how to move from web form-based development to designs based on the MVC pattern. It begins with an introduction to the MVC framework and quickly dives into a working MVC 2 project. Featuring full coverage of new version 2 features, this book helps readers use developer-oriented upgrades like "Areas" to break a large project into smaller pieces and explore the new data handling tools. This revised edition adds a completely new tutorial to bring developers with no prior exposure to the MVC pattern up to speed quickly, keeping its focus on providing high-quality, professional grade examples that go deeper than the other ASP.NET MVC books.
