ASP.NET MVC 2 Framwork is released as a part of Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4. Now it even has better model and standards than the previous version. If you want to build your applications around MVC amework, here are some pros and cons.
Here are the main advantages of building your applications using MVC framework.
MVC Framework is built upon a proven MVC design-pattern. Hence, this is not a new born baby.
One of the biggest problem in ASP.NET is HTML size of controls and view state. View state stores all the data rendered and final HTML gets too large. If you are on a slow internet connection, you will notice load time delays. This has been taken care in MVC framework. There is no view state concept in MVC framework.
Client chaching is availalbe now with the help of Silverlight. By integrating Silverlight, we can take advantage of it. That makes applications load faster and some of the processing can be done in web browsers.Not only the client site but the server side execution is faster too. JQuery integration with MVC makes it even better and now we can write our code that runs in the browser and takes away load from the server.
Support mutliple views
Support unit testing as a part of Visual Studio 2008 and 2010.
