Default New version, older technology?


I'm a bit confused, when the new book "ASP.NET 3.5 Website Programming: Problem - Design - Solution" released, because it seems, a lot of new features included in the project, that uses the outdated ASP.net webform technology instead of MVC.

So wich technology to use? I think, that MVC has many advanteges:

-better organization of the project,
-easily testable

but because of the lack of the MVC controls yet, maybe less productive, but this is a temporary issue.

Because we are before starting a new project, wich technology to use?

Any opinion will be greatly appreciated.

Gabriel: Don't think of webforms as outdated. MVC and webforms are 2 options you have, both are still current. Both will continue to be updated and supported. My guess is that more ASP.NET devs will continue to use webforms than MVC. There's a good table and decision criteria outlining the benefits of each in chapter 2, page 12 of this book. I'd suggest you start there in deciding MVC vs webforms for your next project.

Jim is completely right, don't think of Web Forms and MVC as Old vs New or Bad vs Good. They have different targets related to programmers and needs of your application. As stated in the table Jim referenced, it tries to give guidance, but ultimately you should try both so you know the pros and cons of both.
