ASP.NET MVC Beta version Released

   Following the ASP.NET development this new MVC Framework is important because in some cases will be the right choice for the development process. The first releases had problems regarding AJAX integration and also poor set of controls, when compared to the ASP.NET Web Forms version, but with this version a lot has changed, and things like:

  • Better Visual Studio Support
    • Works with VS 2008 with and without SP1
    • Provides a new “Add View” option in the context Menu when developing the controller class
  • Supports jQuery
    • This has been a great progress for ASP.NET and it’s not only possible with ASP.NET MVC Framework
  • Strong Types
    • Changes in order to use Strong Types like:
      • UpdateModel
      • TryUpdateModel
  • Improved Unit Testing
  • Validation Errors
    • Adds support to IDataErrorInfo
    • Adds support for Dynamic Data Attributes
  • Integration between Silverlight and ASP.NET MVC Projects
