PHP WEB MVC Framework
The package webmvcframework, with the acronym of WebMVC, is an object oriented PHP framework that uses the MVC architectural pattern for building web-based MySQL applications.
It offers to developers a complete set of functionalities for rapid development of data intensive web applications. Generally, it provides services for system decomposition that developers can do at different levels when they coding a complex web application. Firstly it provides the classes to achieve the Model, View, Controller decomposition and also to divide PHP code from HTML during the GUI designing. However, this is not the only feature provided by the Framework for acting on the application's decomposition.
The Component Based Development, that was used for building many framework?s features, permits to developers to apply another level of software decomposition and reuse. Framework?s components, in fact, realize recurrent aspects of web applications. Many of these aspects are regarding MySQL, e.g. data listing, data listing and sorting, data listing and filtering, data listing and pagination, record management and the common table?s operations of select, insert, delete and update.
> WebMVC offers a set of pre-built components for implementing the necessary server logic for frequently database management operations. Each component is itself designed with an MVC architecture and is equipped by a Controller, Model, View, and HTML Template. Components are easy to use and developers can aggregate them into a root controller by using composition criteria when building complex web pages. The component GUI can also easily updated or replaced to reflect the graphics experience, simply by editing or replacing the component HTML template. The component internal logic will remain fully reusable without the need for any source code modifications.
How to install
To install the framework download and copy it into an Apache web folder. Then go to the config directory and modify application.config.php according to your MySQL server configuration and Apache web folder you want to use for your application. By default framework provides a small set of examples. For using them run the provided SQL script into the sql folder. In a future time, I will provide you with more examples illustrating its functionalities.
How to autogenerate PHP Model classes from your MySQL database
The util directory contains a file named app_create_beans.php. Run it from your browser or from command line for executing ORM classes code auto generation regarding tables of a given MySQL database.
Warning ! Before running it you must configure MySQL access parameters by modifying util\mysqlreflection\mysqlreflection.config.php according to your MySQL configuration. After running the utility you will find the autogenerated PHP classes into the models\beans directory.
