Join Class MVC Architecture Diagram

In this article you will learn about MVC architecture, Though MVC architectural pattern has been for a long time in software engineering. MVC pattern is there in all most all the languages, but with slight variation, but conceptually it remains the same everywhere.

Here we talk about MVC (Model – View – Controller)

MVC separates application into three components - Model, View and Controller. Each component has been designed for different set of responsibility.

What is Model in MVC?

Model represents the details of the business object structure, data and business logic. It maintains the data of the application. Model objects are used retrieve and store model state in a database.

Here is an example of how you write a model

public class GuestModel
    [Required(ErrorMessage = "Tell us something ...What you want?")]
    [StringLength(500, ErrorMessage = "10 to 500 characters.", MinimumLength = 10)]
    public string PostedText { get; set; }
    [Required(ErrorMessage = "Your name Required")]
    [StringLength(50, ErrorMessage = "5 to 50 characters.", MinimumLength = 3)]
    public string GuestName { get; set; }
    [Required(ErrorMessage = "Email Required")]
    [EmailAddress(ErrorMessage = "Invalid email")]
    public string GuestEmail { get; set; }
What is View in MVC?

View is a user interface (Razor). View display data using model to the user and also enables user to insert, modify, delete the data.

Here is an example of what you write in View, Razor, will capture user data and display data

@model WebTrainingRoom.Models.GuestModel
@using (Html.BeginForm("guestform", "controllerName", FormMethod.Post))
<div class="s1">
<div>Your Name</div>
@Html.TextBoxFor(m => m.GuestName, new { style = "width:300px;" })
<div>@Html.ValidationMessageFor(m => m.GuestName)</div>
<div class="s1">
<div>Your Email</div>
@Html.TextBoxFor(m => m.GuestEmail, new { style = "width:300px;" })
<div>@Html.ValidationMessageFor(m => m.GuestEmail)</div>
<input type="submit" value="Submit Now" />
What is Controller in MVC?

Controller is the mediator, handles the user request. Controller receives the user request then renders the appropriate view with the model data as a response.

This is how you write Controller, notice Get, and Post for same guestform view

public ActionResult guestform()
GuestModel model = new GuestModel();
return View(model);
public ActionResult guestform(GuestModel model)
StringBuilder _str = new StringBuilder();
//Insert data into database
using (WTRMail email = new WTRMail())
//Send email
ViewBag.AskqueryActionMessage = "Your query has been sent successfully.";
return View(model);

Key Fetures of MVC Architecture

  • Perfect for developing complex but lightweight applications
  • Loose Coupling, You can modify or customised any components
  • Many pluggable framework, that help faster development
  • MVC structure supports test-driven development, so after development application testing become much easier
  • No more viewstate concept, so you can expect better performance
Page Life Cycle in MVC Architecture

mvc lifecycle

  1. When any request received from browser, IIS confirm the request to be processed by
  2. UrlRoutingModule check if the request path match the routes configuration in the application
  3. IRouteHndler executes the ProcessRequest method of MVCHandler passing the current HttpContext
  4. MVCHandler invokes the execute method on Controller
  5. Controller execute the method on action (action name specified in request path)
  6. ActionResult gets executed, ViewResult find the right view using configured view engine in MVC
  7. ViewResult invokes the render method on IVIew, and send the response back to browser MVC Architecture
