What is MVC
Model View Controller (MVC) is a software design for implementing user interfaces on desktop devices. With the MVC architecture, we look at the application structure separated into three parts: the model, the view, and the controller. The model takes care of basic behaviors and data of the application. For example, it can respond to requests for information, and notify observers in event-driven systems when information changes. The view renders data from the model into a form that suits the user interface. The controller receives user input and connects with model objects and the view to perform suitable actions.
Benefits of MVC model to web application development
1. Accelerated Development Process
MVC framework supports rapid and parallel development. Applying MVC architecture in web application development allows flexibility and enhancement on delivery speed. The model allows more than one developer to code on the same application. It means one developer can focus on the view component while the other can concentrate on the controller and create business logic. This helps to accelerate the development process 3 times faster.
2. Multiple view component
The MVC architecture allows users to develop and create multiple view components for a model. This is great as there is an increasing demand for advanced ways to access an application. Moreover, adopting MVC development also helps developers to avoid code repetition since it separates data and the business logic from the display.
3. Modifications and changes do not affect the entire model
Frequent changes are inevitable while developing web applications, such as modifications in color, fonts, screen layouts or adding additional support for mobile/ tablets. By applying MVC model, developers don’t have to worry so much anymore as MVC architecture is very change tolerable thanks to the fact that it isolates the Model part from the view part. Thus, any modifications in the model component will not have any significant impact on the whole architecture.
4. SEO Friendly
Nowadays it’s all about how to rank high in Google. Fortunately, MVC framework is very helpful for the development of SEO friendly web apps and websites. With MVC, it is easy for users to develop SEO-friendly URLs to generate more visits on a specific page.
5. Save time and optimize the use of resources
Since components are isolated from each other in MVC, business logic can be reused across platforms. Additionally, various user interfaces can be developed in line without having to concern about the codebase.
In short, the MVC design pattern is absolutely a great choice and excellent approach to building web apps. At BHSoft, MVC framework is also our one-stop solution because it is easy to adopt and implement in our framework. MVC architecture is also very cost effective, helping us save a lot of time and money.
