We all aware of the new version of ASP.NET i.e. the MVC 6.0. So, why not have a look into the latest features that have been added to the ASP.NET MVC 6.0. Though, we could implement the features offered by the earlier versions of MVC too, but currently as the features are associated with the MVC framework, it will be much easier to use them. You can enrol for training or a crash course on MVC 6.0 to enhance your ASP.NET skills and learn more about the latest framework.
The latest version does not have any configuration changes or requires any external components. As we explore the added features, let us also refresh our awareness about the functionalities offered in the earlier versions before these new features were introduced. Microsoft developed this web application framework, the ASP.NET MVC that implements the MVC or model–view–controller pattern. It is one of the open-source software that lets application developers to create a web application as a combination of three logic layers i.e. Model, View and Controller. ASP.NET MVC 6.0 was released on 18 November 2015.
ASP.NET MVC is a lightweight framework which is considered to have highly testable presentation. It can be easily integrated with the present ASP.NET features. For instance, the integrated features can be master pages and membership-based authentication. The view engine used in the MVC 6.0 framework is Razor .cshtml and .vbhtml by default. It also uses Web Forms .aspx pages for creating layouts of the pages while designing user interface in which the data is composed.
The MVC 6.0 can also use different view engines. Moreover, instead of the default ASP.NET Web Forms postback model, it routes the interactions to the controllers with the help of ASP.NET Routing mechanism. And, you can map the views to different URLs. The Web MVC framework templates seamlessly incorporate with the experiences of the new One ASP.NET. You can also personalize your MVC framework and construct validation by the help of One ASP.NET project creation wizard.
To offer ASP.NET identity, the templates of the MVC framework project are updated to utilize the same for the purpose of authentication and management of identity. Also, they have updated the templates of the MVC framework project to make use of Bootstrap so that it can offer a smooth and responsive appearance that can be easily customized. The ASP.NET MVC offers authentication filters. These filters are a new type of filters that run before the authorization filters in the MVC pipeline. This helps in the specification of the authentication logic for every action and every controller. It can also specify authentication for all the controllers globally.
The process credentials are filtered by the authentication in the request and delivers a corresponding principal. The authentication filters is also able to add authentication challenges according to the unauthorized requests. When MVC deals with creating loosely coupled apps, majority of the new features of MVC 6.0 add up to the creation of loosely coupled architectures. This routing features of the MVC 6.0 helps in decoupling the URL representation of the apps from the rest of it.
