Does VAB from EntLib 6.0 integrates with ASP.NET MVC?

There is Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Validation.Integration.AspNet.. but it's not clear whether it supposed to be use in just ASP.NET WebForms scenarios or both WebForms and MVC?

There is no specific integration with VAB and ASP.NET MVC.

VAB Attributes are DataAnnotations so they can be used with with MVC. Or if you want to use VAB as a validation engine then you could create a ModelValidatorProvider for Enterprise Library. For example, see the article Enterprise Library Validation example for ASP.NET MVC 2 or a similar non-Enterprise Library example Creating a custom ModelValidatorProvider in ASP.NET MVC.
