What is Microsoft ASP.NET MVC 2 - Visual Studio 2010 Tools?

The Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern is an architectural design principle that separates the components of a Web application. This separation gives you more control over the individual parts of the application, which lets you more easily develop, modify, and test them.
