MVVM (Model View ViewModel)

MVVM (Model View ViewModel)
MVVM facilitates a clear separation of the development of the graphical user interface (either as markup language or GUI code) from the development of the business logic or back end logic known as the model (also known as the data model to distinguish it from the view model). The view model of MVVM is a value converter[4] meaning that the view model is responsible for exposing the data objects from the model in such a way that those objects are easily managed and consumed. In this respect, the view model is more model than view, and handles most if not all of the view’s display logic (though the demarcation between what functions are handled by which layer is a subject of ongoing discussion[5] and exploration). The view model may also implement a mediator pattern organising access to the backend logic around the set of use cases supported by the view. History[edit] Microsoft MVP Josh Smith reported[6] that A notable Javascript implementation of this pattern is Knockout.js. Timeline[edit]

Learning JavaScript Design Patterns Design patterns are reusable solutions to commonly occurring problems in software design. They are both exciting and a fascinating topic to explore in any programming language. One reason for this is that they help us build upon the combined experience of many developers that came before us and ensure we structure our code in an optimized way, meeting the needs of problems we're attempting to solve. Design patterns also provide us a common vocabulary to describe solutions. This can be significantly simpler than describing syntax and semantics when we're attempting to convey a way of structuring a solution in code form to others. In this book we will explore applying both classical and modern design patterns to the JavaScript programming language.

Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM) Explained The purpose of this post is to provide an introduction to the Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM) pattern. While I've participated in lots of discussions online about MVVM, it occurred to me that beginners who are learning the pattern have very little to go on and a lot of conflicting resources to wade through in order to try to implement it in their own code. I am not trying to introduce dogma but wanted to pull together key concepts in a single post to make it easy and straightforward to understand the value of the pattern and how it can be implemented. MVVM is really far simpler than people make it out to be. Click here to read the Spanish version (Leer en español)

Multitier architecture In software engineering, multi-tier architecture (often referred to as n-tier architecture) is a client–server architecture in which presentation, application processing, and data management functions are physically separated. The most widespread use of multi-tier architecture is the three-tier architecture. N-tier application architecture provides a model by which developers can create flexible and reusable applications. By segregating an application into tiers, developers acquire the option of modifying or adding a specific layer, instead of reworking the entire application.

MVC (Model View Controller) Model–view–controller (MVC) is a software pattern for implementing user interfaces. It divides a given software application into three interconnected parts, so as to separate internal representations of information from the ways that information is presented to or accepted from the user.[1][2] The central component, the model, consists of application data, business rules, logic and functions. A view can be any output representation of information, such as a chart or a diagram. Multiple views of the same information are possible, such as a bar chart for management and a tabular view for accountants.

Jer's One Stop Shop > Home - MVVM for Tarded Folks Like Me *or* MVVM and What it Means to Me MVVM has been a trending topic lately. And why shouldn’t it be? People want to build great WPF/SL applications and want guidance on how to build them using the framework’s strengths. If you are anything like me, you started your WPF/SL career, learning the framework classes and hierarchy. Objective Cee Real name Objective-C. It is an object oriented extension to the CeeLanguage created at a time when CeePlusPlus was virtually unknown. It is basically C with blocks of SmalltalkLanguage in it (but no automatic GarbageCollection or blocks in ObjectiveCee 1.0, but these features have been added by Apple in the 2.0 release of Objective-C and iOS 4 respectively).

Single-page application A single-page application (SPA) is a web application or web site that fits on a single web page with the goal of providing a more fluid user experience akin to a desktop application. In a SPA, either all necessary code – HTML, JavaScript, and CSS – is retrieved with a single page load,[1] or the appropriate resources are dynamically loaded and added to the page as necessary, usually in response to user actions. The page does not reload at any point in the process, nor does control transfer to another page, although modern web technologies (such as those included in the HTML5 pushState() API) can provide the perception and navigability of separate logical pages in the application. Interaction with the single page application often involves dynamic communication with the web server behind the scenes.

The Prentice Hall Service-Oriented Computing Series from Thomas Erl - About The Series - SOA Design Patterns Praise "The emerging dominant architectural style for many enterprise systems is that of a service-oriented architecture, a style that at its core is essentially a message passing architecture. However, therein are many patterns that work (and anti-patterns that should be avoided). Thomas' work is therefore the right book at the right time. He really groks the nature of SOA systems: There are many hard design decisions to be made, ranging from data-orientation to the problems of legacy integration and even security. Thomas offers wise council on each of these issues and many more, all in the language of design patterns.

Domain Model Pattern Bryan Wheeler, Director Platform Development at msnbc.com “Udi Dahan is the real deal. We brought him on site to give our development staff the 5-day “Advanced Distributed System Design” training. The course profoundly changed our understanding and approach to SOA and distributed systems. Consider some of the evidence: 1. Months later, developers still make allusions to concepts learned in the course nearly every day 2. One of our developers went home and made her husband (a developer at another company) sign up for the course at a subsequent date/venue 3.

User agent User agent identification[edit] In HTTP, the User-Agent string is often used for content negotiation, where the origin server selects suitable content or operating parameters for the response. For example, the User-Agent string might be used by a web server to choose variants based on the known capabilities of a particular version of client software. The User-Agent string is one of the criteria by which Web crawlers may be excluded from accessing certain parts of a Web site using the Robots Exclusion Standard (robots.txt file). Possible privacy issue[edit]

MVVM Patterns WPF Apps With The Model-View-ViewModel Design Pattern Josh Smith Developing the user interface of a professional software application is not easy. Presentation Model Represent the state and behavior of the presentation independently of the GUI controls used in the interface Also Known As: Application Model GUIs consist of widgets that contain the state of the GUI screen. W3C Document Object Model What's new? 20090106: The WebApps WG Drives DOM Specifications. The W3C Web Applications Working Group has taken over responsibility for the Document Object Model specifications, including a new revision of DOM Level 3 Events, a new DOM Core specification, and potentially any errata on older DOM specifications. Discussion can be directed to either the public-webapps@w3.org or the www-dom@w3.org mailing lists. 20080122: The Document Object Model Activity is closed. The Document Object Model Working Group was closed in the Spring of 2004, after the completion of the DOM Level 3 Recommendations. Several W3C Working Groups have since taken the lead in maintaining and continuing to develop standard APIs for the Web since then; HTML, SVG, CSS, or WebAPI being among them.
