Subject: Re: [OT] MVC / Model 2 for Microsoft ???

MVC is never used as a term in the Microsoft world that I know of. When 
I was doing Microsoft stuff as well as java, up to the intro of .NET, 
the architectural paradigm for building "best practice" apps was based 
around the Microsoft Solutions Framework or MSF. You have to know all 
about that to get the MSCD in "Analyzing Requirements and Defining 
Solution Architectures".

I still have the MSCD training kit book for the exam, while I've sold 
all the rest of my VB, MTS, COM & ASP books. It's got alot of useful 
principles / patterns in it.

I might have changed since .NET hit the streets though. I dumped 
Microsoft rather than learn .NET, in order to concentrate on Java, which 
is huge enough without wanting to keep up to date on the MS stuff as well.
