Nikhil has a post about using MS Ajax with MS MVC*.

What was particulary interesting to me was that it reminded me very strongly of posts that I wrote, exploring Ajax in MonoRail. The method used was the same, the only changes were exteremely minute details, such as different method names with the same intention, etc.

* Can we please get better names for those?

That's what I mentioned on the alt.net mailing list on that thread. When I first glanced at the example I thought I was looking at monorail code.

Its amazing how identical the ms mvc stuff is the monorail. coincidence? i think not.

MVC seemed to me like Microsoft port of Monorail. Even the names are the same.


What do you expect MVC to be?

I mean it is an MVC framework like mono rail so why do they have to be different?

MVC is going to be supported/documented by Microsoft (thus widely used) and that will be a huge diference when you choose what framework to use on a web app.

Someone might be expecting microsoft to release a never seen wonderful piece of code?

Have you looked at MVC frameworks? They are radically different in design and implementation.

Take Spring.MVC vs. Structs, as a simple example. Same goal, totally different way of getting there.
