In the last installment we introduced the basic concepts behind the Microsoft Managed Extensibility Framework and built a very simple example, expending a ton of effort for very little return. In this installment, we’ll actually utilize the framework to build an application demonstrating pluggable components in use.
Web Development Tutorials
Most developers at one time or another have found it necessary to componentize their application to allow new pieces to be “plugged in” without rebuilding the application. While there are existing frameworks which address this area, such as one of the many Dependency Injection frameworks, they tend to be much broader in scope, and therefore more complicated to use.
Bugs occur. Once you accept that fact, you can do something about it. There are bugs in every piece of software with even a minimal level of complexity. Various options exist to address these. Manual testing is one, but it is often hard to reproduce, or just isn’t done. Automated testing is also possible, and useful, particularly with regards to test driven development. But even this has problems because poorly written tests require debugging themselves. In short, there is NO silver bullet. There are, however, more tools available.

In the first installment, we explained what Razor was, set up our development environment, downloaded the MVC 3 preview and looked at the contents of the default project. We then took a look at the structure of a content view file using the Razor view engine and compared it to a content view file build with the standard aspx view engine.
