Methods, apparatus, and computer program products that implement techniques for extending the MVC design pattern by structuring data of an application into application contexts. The techniques feature accessing a predetermined structure for a storage area, modifying the predetermined structure and creating an instance of the storage area according to the predetermined structure. The storage area relates to a controller. The controller is operable to manipulate a model and a view. The view includes multiple UI elements for presenting data from the model. The predetermined structure includes multiple design-time context elements and relationships between the design time-context elements. At least one of the UI elements is bound to one of the design-time context elements. The instance of the storage area includes multiple run-time context elements. Each run-time context element corresponds to one of the design-time context elements.
