Hi Friends,
I can't find Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern in J2EE Pattern Framework. I think MVC is a kind of architecture. Maybe pattern and architecture are the same thing. Do you agree with me ?

Pattern is usually more generic whereas an architecture or framework is usually more specific or created for a specific use.
For example a M.V.C. architecture defines specific layers, which deal with different types of logic. View handles the graphic and data rendering, controller can route the info. and model can presist the data, but there is nothing stoping you from using mvc whithin each of the layers.
I hope this helps.
