Though MVC 4 is still in developer preview , not released in RTM phase but there is cool staff of development of ASP.NET MVC 4 applications for desktop & Mobile with Windows Azure environment.

Since it’s always been a great experience with working of MVC with Windows Azure of rich web experiences in Cloud. So , Lets a Windows Azure application targeted for Mobile Smart devices (Windows Phone 7, BlackBerry 7 , i-Os, Android ) & deploy in Azure of Microsoft Data Centeres.

  • Let’s Create a new Windows Azure Application from Visual Studio & do not add any webrole to it as we will add our ASP.NET MVC 4 webrole with it . (P.S:  Those  who have already MVC4 Webrole Template installed in Windows Azure environment of Visual Studio , can go & take a MVC 4 Web Role Template).
  • For those who dont have MVC 4 WebRole Template for Windows Azure environment for Visual Studio can simply create the blank Azure Project as we will add ASP.NET MVC 4 web application project later.

  •  Check out the  WebRole sections, Click OK as we dont need to take WebRole from default WebRole options.

  •  Next , Check out the Blank Azure Project created in your Visual Studio solution with ServiceConfiguration.cscfg & ServiceDefinition.csdef files.
  • Now , Time to add a new ASP.NET MVC 4 Project from Visual Studio , so on the solution explorer right click the solution -> add -> new project -> choose New ASP.NET MVC 4 Web Application.

  • Next , Add the ASP.NET MVApplication C 4 application with Windows Azure Project . To do this , right click on Roles of your Windows Azure project & select Web Role Project in Solution . Redirect to Associate Web Role Project in Solution Window  & Click OK.

        Check the ASP.NET MVC 4 web application has been added as webrole in Windows Azure Roles.

    • Click OK to add the existing MVC 4 solution with Windows Azure Application.
  •  Now it’s time to run the Windows Azure Project with ASP.NET MVC 4 in development fabric. So hit F5.

  •  Now time to test the application in Mobile Devices so , test in Windows Phone as this asp.net MVC 4 web application project has been enabled for Mobile apps.

  •  Associate Page View 

  •  Now , Test it in Android 2.2 & Android 3 Tablet device.

  •  Android 3.0 Tablet View for ASP.NET MVC 4 Windows Azure Application.

  •  Run it on BlackBerry OS of BlackBerry 9800 device.

  •  So the Windows Azure Application with ASP.NET MVC 4 for mobile is ready for development fabric , so deploy it Azure VM & run it from cloud to mobile.
