We have been looking at all the parts that make a sample ASP.Net MVC application. Previously we have discussed the database schema of our application as well as implementation of the Repository Pattern with filters on that schema. If you haven’t been following this series of posts you might want to read parts 1 and 2 before continuing. Url Routing has become a very common these days. In fact, at least among the websites I visit, it has become more common than not routing urls.

In the first part of this series we didn’t really look at the MVC framework. We talked about what it is and what it does but didn’t look at any code. We did however plan out what we wanted our application to do and created our database schema that will support our application. In this part we are going to jump in and get an MVC Application created and look at the Model portion of the application. We’ll create our domain objects and data repositories. It is important to note that I will be using the Repository Pattern with Pipes and Filters Pattern. So we’ll have our data repositories and their relevant filters. We will then create data service objects that encapsulate the repositories. Also, I will be using LINQ To SQL to interact with the database. If you prefer a different method of data access feel free to use something else. Finally, before we get started, I will not be writing unit tests for this series, at least not showing them in the posts, in order to keep things simple and to keep the posts from getting too long.

This is a guest post by Ryan Lanciaux.

Hi my name is Ryan Lanciaux. I want the thank the guys at Dev102 for giving me the opportunity to write about a topic I find very interesting — jQuery and the ASP.NET MVC Framework.

With WebForms, integrating with Ajax libraries other than ASP.NET AJAX was slightly painful. With the new ASP.NET MVC Framework, however, you can use jQuery without these additional headaches. We’re going to take a quick look at how the Frickinsweet.com Theme Generator uses some of the built in ASP.NET MVC utilities combined w/ jQuery to give the user an update with out reloading the page. The example we’re going to look at is a little simplified but the concepts are still there.

The first thing we’re going to do is create an ASP.NET MVC (Preview 4) Project. Create a new view and controller action under your Home controller and add the following line to the view.

This is a simple hello world example with ASP.NET MVC, to help you build your first application step by step. I will not explain the ASP.NET MVC here, you can find plenty of excellent resources on the web for that, you can try one of these: Kigg – Building a Digg Clone with ASP.NET MVC, ASP.NET MVC Framework, An Architectural View of the ASP.NET MVC Framework . We’ll create a web application with two additional views – the first will ask for your name, and when you submit it you’ll get a greeting message in the 2nd view. Lets start:

1. Download and install ASP.NET MVC Preview 3.

2. Create a new ASP.NET MVC Web Application, Call it MVCHelloWorld
