The article is talking about some new changes in the web development environment. Author mentioned that ASP.NET is getting old even it has a great stability, productivity and performance in over all web development. There are two alternatives for ASP.NET. which are MonoRail and ASP.NET MVC. In the article, author had briefly and mainly described the features and benefits of the newer version of ASP.NET which is ASP.NET MVC. MVC is standing for Model –View- Controller. It is a pattern which can be used for web development. The unique part of the ASP.NET MVC is that all the incoming requests are just go through a single component which is the MVC HTTP handler. Finally, the author has mentioned the main difference between ASP.NET and ASP.NET MVC is the URL represent as an action instead of a file. Base on the author, ASP.NET MVC is not bound to the server or a render technology. It simply just generates the response through an object and helps implement the contract. In the conclusion, there are a lot of new tools allowed users to use on building a website. ASP.NET MVC is a new introduced technology in the area.
I agree with the author that the ASP.NET is a little bit old considering when it has been out for eight years already. New technologies and better version are always welcomed. I think the new features provided by the ASP.NET MVC can really help the web developer pretty well. In addition, the correlation with our class will be the ASP.NET part which we are currently using.
In conclusion, ASP.NET is a great web development tool in the past. The new improved version sure change and renewed the way people developing the web just like what the title of the article. Overall, this article is a little bit out of date since there are newer versions of ASP.NET MVC out in the environment already. However, it is still good to know some of the previous version of the program which we are using now.
