We currently have a straight-forward Spring MVC app with Tiles. That is, the controller is in charge of flow and assembling page fragments into pages. Ajax is used to submit, refresh, etc. fragments.
My question, does this break the MVC model because the controller is not used? Is this a component based arch vs the action based of MVC?
I have no prejudice either way, but I do not think my team mates realize the fundamental shift we are making, and therefore are not thinking through the implications.
