This week's book giveaway is in the OCMJEA forum. We're giving away four copies of OCM Java EE 6 Enterprise Architect Exam Guide and have Paul Allen & Joseph Bambara on-line! See this thread for details.
The Front Controller is part of the MVC. It is the main controller which receives all request and dispatches them to the correct controller. For example, the DispatcherServlet in SpringMVC is the front controller.
I guess it would be valid, as having a class that can be reliably called a "Controller" implies that there is also a View and a Model, which renders any project with a Front Controller doing what it's supposed to do, automatically MVC, more or less.
