  1. ASP.NET MVC provides a clean separation of concerns.

  4. ASP.NET does not support post back events so ASP.NET MVC application is quicker in performance as compared to traditional web form application.



What Is MVC?




  1. Model – It describes the data as well as the business logic of the application.
  2. View – It displays the user interface of the application.
  3. Controller – It handles communication with the user and controls overall application flow.
