Comparing ASP.NET MVC with ASP.NET Web Forms
If you have already knowledge of ASP.NET Web forms then you might be focused to see some differentiation between these two.
Both ASP.NET Webform and ASP.NET MVC are part of ASP.NET Framework. There are some equivalence and dissimilarity between these two.
ASP.NET Web form have server controls but in ASP.NET MVC server controls not supported and its fully based on HTML controls. If you see at the below image you can see that no server controls in the toolbox.
ASP.NET MVC there is no concept of View State. ASP.NET MVC use the concept of HtmlHelpers for rendering HTML controls in a view. ASP.NET MVC is based on divisions of cover that is why ASP.NET MVC is pluggable and easy-going system. Execute Automated Test projects with ASP.NET MVC is easier than Web forms.
ASP.NET MVC process cycle is very easier than Web forms and MVC produce a good performance. In our judgement we feel for a Web form developer, ASP.NET MVC not easy to learn and understand as its more into coding not more drag and drop but once its fully understood then its very simple.
Layout page is worked as Master page in ASP.NET MVC and partial views can be examine as a replacement of user control in Web form. Web form uses common Web-form syntax but in MVC app uses customizable syntax default to Razor.
There are many more equivalence and dissimilarity,Once you start learning with ASP.NET MVC you will learn more.
Dissimilarity between Asp.Net WebForm and Asp.Net MVC
Asp.net framework is a component of .net platform for deploying , structure and executing web applications. Presently, we can designing a web application by using Asp.Net Web Form and Asp.Net MVC. In this tutorial, We are moving to show the main dissimilarity between Asp.Net Web Form and Asp.Net MVC.
|Asp.Net Web Forms||Asp.Net MVC|
|Web Form allow a traditional event driven development model.||MVC is a lightweight and follow MVC (Model, View, Controller) pattern based development model.|
|Web Form has server controls.||MVC has html helpers.|
|Web Form has state management techniques.||MVC has no automatic state management techniques.|
|Web Form has file-based URLs means file name occur in the URLs must have its physically existence.||MVC has route-based URLs means URLs are separated into controllers and actions and moreover it is based on controller not on physical file.|
|Web Form allows Web Forms Syntax||MVC allow customizable syntax (Razor)|
|Web Form, Web Forms(ASPX) that is views are strongly coupled to Code behind(ASPX.CS) that is logic.||MVC, Views and logic are kept separately.|
|Web Form has concept of Master Pages for consistent appear and observe.||MVC has concept Layouts for consistent appear and observe.|
|Web Form has concept of User Controls for code re-usability.||MVC has concept of Partial Views for code re-usability.|
|Web Form has built-in data controls and best for fast development with powerful data access.||MVC is lightweight, gives full control over markup and support many characteristics that allow fast & agile development. Hence it is ultimate for developing interactive web application with newest web standards.|
|Web Form is not Open Source.||Web MVC is an Open Source.|
