This is a continuation of the TeraTech Development Approach from last month
5. Web Site Design in Fusebox
The system methodology used for NJ Sullivan development is Fusebox 4.1 running on ColdFusion MX version 6.1. The design model to be employed is the Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern.
With Fusebox and MVC there is a separation of the data from the presentation and business rules. A plan for the Fusebox model is developed from the form prototype by the system architect.
Detailed module functional requirements are prepared by the architect using the standard Fusebox “Fusedoc” model. (www.fusebox.org)
6. Develop Database Access Components
During Web site construction the data access model is tranlated into database access components using ColdFusion components. These data construcs enable the re-use of common data queries and update logic by all system functions.
