    Why is MVC been released with scaffolding and ASP.Net Dynamic Data was abandoned?

    Can something of MVC be applied to DD?

    NOTE: .... SCAFFOLDING IS A GOOD THING !!!!

    The scaffolding in MVC is different than the DD scaffolding. MVC scaffolding is actually a code generation using T4 templates where VS generates the controllers and views for you. DD scaffolding is a run-time generation of the forms based on the model and the meta data you set on the model.

    You can always write your own T4 templates to suit your need and you can use them for your DD project.

    Dynamic Data has effected everything and there is now Scaffolding in Web Forms from MVC but as the other guy said DD is different from Scaffolding and also DD has not been abandoned :) it's just there is much more going on in MVC and other things than Web Forms as Web Forms is very mature.
