The lightweight ASP.NET Core MVC framework, immediately after its release, had a big impact on the software development industry. The framework is optimized for ASP.NET Core making it a very handy tool when it comes to the development of dynamic, new generation web applications.
Touted as one of the most widely used of all Microsoft technologies alongside Azure, ASP.NET is the source of some of the greatest websites present on the internet. With ASP.NET Core MVC, the potential of the technology only grows.
In this blog, we will be exploring some of the most essential features of the ASP.NET Core MVC which makes it an ideal choice for developing modern web applications.
The Model Binding feature of the framework converts client request data into objects that are in turn controlled by the Controller.
In addition to Model Binding, the ASP.NET Core MVC framework also aids with the model validation process. The framework can decorate model object by using data annotation validation attributes. Before the values are posted on to the server, the backend checks the validation attributes.
The MVC framework was developed at the top of ASP.NET Core’s routing, which turned out to be a great feature of the framework. In a nutshell, the routing feature is a URL-based mapping component that aids with the development of URLs that can be both searched and understood. This feature allows defining a URL’s naming pattern so that it’s SEO friendly and complements link generation.
In technical terms, this feature is what enables the controllers of the framework to follow the Explicit Dependencies Principle once the controllers request the needed services with the help of constructors.
The framework also comes with ‘Filters’ that can compress issues such as authorization and exception handling. Filters can also be useful to run pre as well as post customized processing logic for action methods. In addition, filters can also act as attributes when implemented to controllers.
This feature helps in dividing large ASP.NET MVC app into smaller groupings that are functional. The area can be defined, within the application, as an MVC structure.
All of these features and a number of others collectively grant an array of benefits not only to product owners but also to developers as well.
- With ASP.NET Core MVC framework, developers can easily build robust cross-platform applications for popular operating systems such as Windows, macOS and Linux.
- The aforementioned features also maintain modularity thus simplifying coding.
- The framework’s architecture itself allows developers to build cloud-ready applications that can be deployed on the cloud without issues.
By offering a series of advantages, ASP.NET Core MVC is all set to transform the ASP.NET Development Services sector once more while retaining its ranks among the greatest application development technologies the world has ever known. Thanks to Microsoft’s consistent efforts to keep improving ASP.NET Core, this technology is not going to be outdated any time soon.
