Ltd Page 4 of 5 Page 4 of 5 Manpower Project Leader 1 Developers 4 Designers 1 Quality Assurance Testers 1 Planning Keeping in mind the enormous structure of the website and the challenges involved a 3-tier development approach was adopted consisting of: • The Data Access layer containing the libraries responsible for accessing data from the database. • The Business Logic layer consisting of all business logic procedures for modules like user profiles, groups and registration info etc. • The User Interface layer which forms the Graphical User Interface of the website. Architecture We are using 3- tier architecture which consists of Presentation layer (PL), Business Access layer (BAL) and Data Access layer (DAL). BAL: Business Access layer contains business logics and validations related to the data. DAL: Data Access layer contains methods which help the business layer to connect the data and perform required action via returning data or manipulating data (insert, delete, update). PL: Presentation layer contains .phtml where data is presented to the user and inputs are taken from the users. Deployment Architecture For deployment we are using Linux Cent OS 6.0. We are also using MVC architecture. The benefits of MVC are given below: 1. Enables the full control over the rendered HTML 2. Easy integration with JavaScript frameworks
