Template to use when starting a new MVC4 Website. Template contains Web Site with 3-Tier architecture using Unity for injection. It also contains the best nuget package for website creation.
Three-tier architecture has the following three tiers :
Presentation tier This is the topmost level of the application. The presentation tier displays information related to such services as browsing merchandise, purchasing, and shopping cart contents. It communicates with other tiers by outputting results to the browser/client tier and all other tiers in the network.
Application tier (business logic, logic tier, data access tier, or middle tier) The logic tier is pulled out from the presentation tier and, as its own layer, it controls an application’s functionality by performing detailed processing.
Data tier This tier consists of database servers. Here information is stored and retrieved. This tier keeps data neutral and independent from application servers or business logic. Giving data on its own tier also improves scalability and performance.
Note: If you have VS2010 and VS2012 installed on your computer, this template will work with VS2012 perfectly but in order to make it work on VS2010, you will need to fix project's references.
