model-view-controller (MVC)

In object-oriented programming development, model-view-controller (MVC) is the name of a methodology or design pattern for successfully and efficiently relating the user interface to underlying data models. The MVC pattern is widely used in program development with programming languages such as Java, Smalltalk, C, and C++.

The MVC pattern has been heralded by many developers as a useful pattern for the reuse of object code and a pattern that allows them to significantly reduce the time it takes to develop applications with user interfaces.

The model-view-controller pattern proposes three main components or objects to be used in software development:

  • A Model , which represents the underlying, logical structure of data in a software application and the high-level class associated with it. This object model does not contain any information about the user interface.
  • A View , which is a collection of classes representing the elements in the user interface (all of the things the user can see and respond to on the screen, such as buttons, display boxes, and so forth)
  • A Controller , which represents the classes connecting the model and the view, and is used to communicate between classes in the model and view.

Sorry, but Design Patterns are for idiots. First all, any good programmer know you NEVER use 3 letter acronyms. They are way to short, abstract, and confusing. Programmers were forced to use in the distant past, but there no longer is any excuse. Nor does Model View Controller fit or apply to historical precedent. A user interface is implemented by event handlers. No other label is appropriate. MVC is just BS.

No, Model View Controller is NOT object oriented programming at all, and in fact is not even good programming.
Model View Controller comes from Design Patterns, which is a highly controversial and now largely discredited fad.
The Model View Controller us usually abbreviated as MVC, and that alone shows it is not programming, because good programmers stopped abbreviating to acronyms decades ago.
What Model View Controller ACTUALLY is about is event handlers to deal with user input to data. But the name is awful, unintuitive, and completely ignores and breaks from standard programming traditions and methodologies.
