The controller base class provides some common functions you will need for controllers in your applications, especially related to maintaining an editing context.
In general you will not use this class, but you can use a subclass such as ObjectController, TreeController, or ArrayController.
One major function of a controller is to mediate between changes in the UI and changes in the model. In particular, you usually do not want changes you make in the UI to be applied to a model object directly. Instead, you often will want to collect changes to an object and then apply them only when the user is ready to commit their changes.
The editing contact support in the controller class will help you provide this capability.
