About MVC Pattern

Posted by Rajesh Kumar on March 24, 2009

 MVC was conceived in 1978 as the design solution to a particular problem. The top level goal was to support the
user’s mental model of the relevant information space and to enable the user to inspect and edit this information.

I know most of you have been implementing/using MVC pattern in your variety of applications. By the way, do you know who suggested/created this pattern?

This MVC pattern is proposed by”Trygve M. H. Reenskaug “. You can see his home page at: http://heim.ifi.uio.no/~trygver/trygve/trygve.html
