ASP.NET MVC provides the architecture needed to separate an application's logic and its UI. Because each component's role is well defined, MVC applications are easy to test, maintain, and extend. The latest version, ASP.NET MVC 4, takes advantage of .NET 4 and includes powerful features like the Razor view engine, Web Matrix helpers, and enhanced extensibility.
