Make the MVP Pattern a 1st Class Citizen

Make the Model-View-Presenter pattern a 1st class citizen in ASP.NET/Visual studio, to combine the testability of MVC with the benefits of the WebForm abstraction layer.

    The problem is Microsoft.
    Microsoft abandon developers.
    They abandoned Silverlight developers
    They abandoned LightSwitch developers
    They abandoned VB6 programming developers
    If you use Microsoft you just know they will abandon you too.

    yes , it is the open source mvp framework but i do not understand why Microsoft does not include this kind of stuff officially in VS in asp

    Those community site is good. But still it would be better to have "native" support.

    With al those new and improved pattern implementations for VS2010 like ASP.NET MVC and MVVM for SL and WP7. There is also one missing and thats the MVP pattern for ASP.NET WebForms. Almost all my clients who develop with ASP.NET WebForms makes an big mess of their WebApp architecture and that's because they don't use an proper User Interface pattern and develop all their businesslogic in their WebForms, not to mention the testability. Several years ago the patterns & practices team developed Web Client Software Factory who contained the ObjectContainerDataSource with the MVP pattern. The ObjectContainerDataSource is in my honoust opinion a good way to support the MVP pattern in ASP.NET WebForms, so therefore I'll would vote to default support the MVP pattern with the ObjectContainerDataSource to be added into future versions of Visual Studio.
