In software development, a popular architecture for structuring websites is the Model-View-Controller. This organization is used to simplify complicated software into smaller pieces that have defined roles. An analogy to visualize the importance of the MVC would be Henry Ford’s assembly line to manufacture Automobiles.
In Ford’s assembly line, one set of people are in charge of making tires, another group is in charge of producing the engine, and another group is assigned to putting the parts together into an automobile. This is exactly what is going on in the MVC architecture:
– A controller is in charge of directing the commands for a functional website. The controller communicates with both the model and the view to give the user the best experience possible.
– A model interacts with the associated database to pass data to the view based on the instructions of the controller. The model holds all of the associations between different objects.
– A view gets information from the model and presents the data to the user in an appropriate manner. The view is usually what a person see when they are using a website
This was a basic overview of the parts of the MVC architecture. I hope you enjoyed this and learned something!
