Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Model-View-Controller pattern—universally known as MVC—provides a stable, testable approach to web application development by separating the major functions—or concerns—of an application into independently defined roles.

ASP.NET MVC in Action is a comprehensive guide to MVC-based development using this powerful framework. It offers a clearly-written introduction both to the ASP.NET MVC Framework and to the MVC approach. The focus is on creating real, maintainable web applications—so don't expect toy examples and short snippets. The authors lead you from first-use through real-life scenarios.

One of the key benefits of the MVC approach is introducing a high degree of testability to your applications and process. ASP.NET MVC in Action shows you how to test each piece of your ASP.NET application and how to introduce principles of test-driven development into your process.

Because the framework is completely pluggable, you'll learn how to work with external Inversion of Control containers like StructureMap, Windsor, and Spring.NET and open-source persistence layers like NHibernate. Throughout the book, the authors sprinkle in MvcContrib, an extremely useful tool that provides common extensions so you don't have to write them yourself. Along the way, you'll benefit from the wide-ranging experience of the authors, who have extensive experience with ASP.NET, Monorail, and Ruby on Rails. This book assumes that you already know how to build a standard ASP.NET application and presents most examples in C#.

What reviewers are saying

"Shows how to put all the features of ASP.NET MVC together to build a great application." -From the Foreword by Phil Haack, Senior Program Manager, ASP.NET MVC Team, Microsoft

"This book put me in control of ASP.NET MVC."

-Mark Monster, Software Engineer, Rubicon

"Highly recommended for those switching from Web Forms to MVC."

-Frank Wang, Chief Software Architect, DigitalVelocity LLC

"I'd highly recommend this to anyone who is serious about building web applications with ASP.NET MVC."

-Jeremy Skinner, ASP.NET developer and technical proofreader of the book

"...does a good job of not only showing you what to do, but also provides cautionary words to avoid poor practices that may lead to maintenance issues on non-trivial applications."

-Venkat Subramanian, NoFluffJustStuff Blogs

"I really enjoyed ASP.NET MVC in Action and highly recommend it for a fresh look at the ASP.NET MVC Framework."

-David Hayden, MVP

"In the end [the authors] not only did an excellent job of putting together a great practical guide to ASP.NET MVC they also successfully embedded some subversive ALT.NET concepts that will hopeful make us all better developers. And at the end of the day that is a damn fine accomplishment."

-Bobby Johnson

"ASP.NET MVC in Action will guide you from your first project through advanced topics such as AJAX and deploying on suboptimal hosting environments. The writing style is clear and concise. Diagrams and code examples are abundant. I recommend it for anyone looking for a great resource for learning about or becoming a better user of the ASP.NET MVC framework."

-Nathan Stott, Partner and Software Engineer at Whiteboard-IT

"I'm very happy with this book. I would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in ASP.NET MVC. Getting the 'beyond the text' that comes with the CodeCampServer is just icing on the cake, truly."

-Chris Stewart, CompiledMonkey.com

"ASP.NET MVC in Action is a true masterpiece...The authors, Jeffrey Palermo, Ben Scheirman and Jimmy Bogard are all considered rock stars in the ASP.NET community and they have opened up the doors to their concert with ASP.NET MVC in Action."

-Mohammad Azam, Microsoft MVP

Synopsis:

The MVC pattern is widely accepted as the best practice for web development and is at the core of Rails, Zend Framework, and other modern web dev tools. Microsoft's new ASP.NET MVC Framework offers a fully-supported way for developers to implement MVC in ASP.NET.

Synopsis:

ASP.NET MVC implements the Model-View-Controller pattern on the ASP.NET runtime. It works well with open source projects like NHibernate, Castle, StructureMap, AutoMapper, and MvcContrib.

ASP.NET MVC in Action is a guide to pragmatic MVibased web development. After a thorough overview, it dives into issues of architecture and maintainability. The book assumes basic knowledge of ASP.NET (v. 3.5) and expands your expertise. Some of the topics covered: How to effectively perform unit and full-system tests. How to implement dependency injection using StructureMap or Windsor How to work with the domain and presentation model How to work with persistence layers like NHibernate The book's many examples are in C#.

Synopsis:

The Model-View-Controller pattern is widely accepted as a best practice for UI development. With Microsoft's first release of an MVC framework for ASP.NET development, web development on the .NET framework is both simplified and more flexible. ASP.NET MVC in Action is an advanced guide to developing long-lived applications with the ASP.NET MVC framework. It moves past simple introductions and dives deep into architectural techniques that lead to maintainable web applications with the MVC pattern.

ASP.NET MVC in Action lays a flexible foundation based on Domain-driven design, the S.O.L.I.D. principles, TDD, and interface-based development. With best-practices woven into every chapter, the authors present the new ASP.NET MVC framework in a manner that leads to more maintainable .NET web applications.

This book assumes that readers are already experienced with ASP.NET development and C#. Numerous popular open-source libraries, such as MvcContrib, are referenced throughout, and the book comes with the full source to CodeCampServer, a user group conference organizing application.
