Summary 14.04.2009


Stephen Walther writes in his 50th tip about creating view models. Based on Nerd Dinner starter kit, Stephen extracts a pattern of having strongly-typed views by using a controller in the middle. The controller retrieves the data and pumps it back into the view. From a DDD perspective, I think that the entities themselves should not arrive directly into the view, rather some additional DTOs that map exactly the view’s need could be returned instead. This approach is needed when the entities in the model do not easily map to what the view needs.
