Paul Jones:
Action-Domain-Responder, Content Negotiation, and Routers
July 18, 2014 @ 10:17:57

In his latest post Paul Jones comes back to his proposed application structure, the idea of Action-Domain-Responder, and answers some questions about where content negotiation happens and routing.

While talking about Action-Domain-Responder on the Crafting Code Tour, one of the common questions I got was: "Where does content negotiation happen?" My response was always: "Where does it happen in Model-View-Controller?" That opened up a discussion on how content negotiation is a tricky bit that can go in different places, depending on how you want the concerns separated, and is not a problem specific to ADR.

He goes on and tries to answer the question a bit better, pointing out that "it's a problem for everyone" isn't really good enough to take action on. He works through the different pieces of the ADR pattern, trying to reason out where the right fit is. He suggests a "first filter" on the Controller level, more specifically at the Router level. That's not to say that the Router needs to know about content handling, but it does need to know how to pass that information on.
