MVC, or Model-View-Controller, is an architectural pattern used in software development to separate an application into three interconnected components. This separation of concerns makes it easier to manage and maintain complex applications. Here’s a simple breakdown of each component:
- Model: This is the component that handles the data and the business logic of the application. It includes all the data-related logic the user works with.
- View: The View component is used for all the UI (User Interface) logic of the application. It presents data to the user and handles user interaction.
- Controller: This acts as an interface between the Model and the View components. It receives input and initiates a response by making calls to model objects.
Benefits of MVC
- Easy debugging: since the project is divided into components, it is easy to debug one component without interfering with others.
- Ease of use: The user is able to concentrate on their current task without being concerned about how to operate the application.
- Ease of extensibility: It is easier to add new components without interfering with the other components of the application.
