ASP.NET MVC Framework

Scott Guthrie just announced the future plans for the ASP.NET MVC Framework, and I'm thinking that this might be the future of WCSF and probably why WCSF has not been updated for a while.

The p&p Web Client team is working closely with the ASP.NET team on the MVC framework. After the ASP.NET MVC framework is released, we will determine what guidance to provide. If you want more details on MVC and our plans for to support MVC, you can go to Glenn's blog post.

Speaking of updates to WCSF, have you seen our releases over the last 3 weeks? If you go to the bundles page, you can see our most recent releases which include Contextual AutoComplete, Validation, Composite Web Client Library, Composite Web Client Automation, and Responsive Composite Web Client Referenece Implementation. These bundles taken together provide the pieces required to build a responsive composite Web client. Check them out and give us your thoughts.

If you want to see additional bundles that we are considering, go to Glenn's blog.

Thanks. It's very good to hear that WCSF will go on and probably leverage the ASP.NET MVC framework. I just had trouble trying to get WCSF to work with VS 2008 and the new GAX and GAC, and was wondering if this was why.. Do you know when WCSF will fully support VS 2008 when its release is around the corner now?

Which version of GAX do you have? To run on on VS 2008, you need GAX July 2007 version. The knowledge base (check at the bottom of the page) contains a post on how to make WCSF run on Visual Studio 2008.

We are in the process of running more tests of WCSF with Visual Studio 2008. After we finish the tests, we will make a decision as to when we will provide an update for Visual Studio 2008.

Today, we created a new category on Web Client Software Factory Knowledge Base named Web Client Software Factory in Orcas (before, these articles were published in Others category).
Here, you can find info about WCSF working with Visual Studio 2008.

Hope it helps!
