Model View Controller Developers


“Model view controller” (MVC) is the name of a methodology (or design pattern) that software developers use to divide an application into three manageable and interconnected components and organize code. Using this methodology facilitates code reuse and reduces the time it takes to develop complex applications. The controller component sends commands from software users to the model and view components. The model component stores data, and the view component presents the layout and display of the data to the user. The MVC methodology is widely used in program development with programming languages such as C++, C, Java, and Smalltalk. Model view controller developers use the MVC methodology—and Web application frameworks such as ASP.NET MVC, Apache Struts, Spring MVC, and Cake PHP—to design prepackaged and customized computer software. (Frameworks are libraries of programming languages that developers use to create the front-end and back-end structure of a Web site.)
