Official support for Attribute Routing in Kentico 12 Mvc projects
Attribute Routing for Mvc has been official supported by Microsoft since October 2013.
Some developers in the .NET web community recognize it as a superior routing solution to Convention Routing, which is what Kentico 12 Mvc currently uses.
It can be shown that Attribute Routing scales much better in terms of maintenance and flexibility with large projects compared to Convention Routing. These large projects are exactly the type that benefit from using Mvc instead of Web Forms.
Sometimes a combination of Convention and Attribute Routing can lead to the best results for a site.
If Kentico wants to empower developers with their Mvc solution, supporting the practices for architecture in the Mvc community that have existed for years is an important goal.
