Is ASP.net MVC a direct copy of Ruby on Rails concepts?


Is ASP.net MVC a direct copy of Ruby on Rails concepts?



I'm been developing Ruby on Rails previously. I'm now looking at an ASP.net web app and I'm looking at WebForms and MVC. As I look at MVC it feels as if I'm looking at the result of something a Ruby on Rails developer implemented after being forced to work in MS land. So I'm wondering:

Was MVC more or less taken directly from Ruby on Rails and it's concepts? (either intentionally or unintentionally)




Is it possible for a Master page to access Controller properties?

ASP.NET MVC - Wordpress Style URLs
MVC has obviously existed long before Rails or ASP.NET MVC..
Dropdown client-side validation in IE7, using Html.ValidateFor() helper
ASP.NET MVC is however, influenced by Ruby on Rails, but that really isn't a bad thing.


SEO: Duplicated URLs with and without dash “/” and ASP.NET MVC
Specification of routing is handled in a similar way, helpers are similar.


Why does moving classes into a new folder in Visual Studio break things?
While all MVC frameworks are similar, ASP.NET MVC feels as close to Rails as you could achieve in a language such as C#..
Custom 400 redirect based on MVC Controller


Using ASP.NET MVC 2 to display joined record


To achieve basic code coverage what tests should I run against an ASP.NET MVC Controller?

I agree that the MVC pattern's been around a while and it's a good architecture for web apps, but if you look at ASP.NET MVC, you soon come to the conclusion that they could have named it Rails.NET .

I have worked with Struts, Spring, RoR and now asp.net MVC.

I feel that there is enough room for different concepts, even if the main concept and brandname for a framework is MVC.

. As it goes to asp.net MVC, it seems that RoR was taken as the reference implementation of web MVC..

No, MVC is a design pattern that works very well for web applications.

Ruby on Rails i think was an early adopter that showed how well suited it was for a web architecture, and was probably an influence on MS implementation, but did not come up with the design..
