Struts like frameworks for .NET?

I know this is off topic, but my job was outsourced overseas and I am now in a ASP.NET with C# shop that has a glaring need for something like Struts.
While I would love to fight to switch to Java, its not going to happen so I have to deal with it.
Is anyone aware of a a similar action or rule based framework for ASP.NET?
Thanks in advance.

.NET is a framework. And since ASP.NET uses CodeBehind to implement the Control, it would be difficult to do anything otherwise. Not to mention getting something else to work inside of VS.NET.
My opinion, ASP.NET is soooo freakin easy, there is no need for a framework.
So I guess I didn't really answer your question though did I. Sorry, I don't know of any.

I guess I mean more of like a navigation framework.
I've used struts before to guide actions to do certain things, and emulate processes, like for automated testing.
I am staring at a system I have to design and know that Struts would be perfect. Its the type of thing where you basically have a decision tree to perform certain business tasks based on roles, and other stuff. It would be perfect in Struts, but alas.... I now work for the dark side...

Have you tried NStruts? I haven't used it (personally) but I hear it a pretty good port..

There is an UIP Application Block available from, Do a search for UIP or User Interface Process. It is a framework for MVC in ASP.NET
