Struts and the View Layer


Overview

In an MVC application, the View layer provides an interface to your application, be it for users with a browser or for another application using something like Web services. Basically the View layer is the conduit for getting data in and out of the application. It does not contain business logic, such as calculating interest for a banking application or storing items in a shopping cart for an online catalog. The View layer also does not contain any code for persisting data to or retrieving data from a data source. Rather, it is the Model layer that manages business logic and data access. The View layer simply concentrates on the interface.

Keeping the Model and View layers separate from one another allows an application's interface to change independent of the Model layer and vice versa. This separation also allows the application to have multiple interfaces (or views). For instance, an application could have a Web interface and a wireless interface. In this case, each interface is separate, but both use the same Model layer code without the Model layer being tied to either interface or either interface having to know about the other interface.
