Application Design

Recommended Posts

A while ago, I blindly started to work on a "module" class. The Idea: to create a common interface for application "modules"...

After some coding, with the idea just a vague image in my head, I decided that I'd have to visualize and document the idea, since the size of the project started to become clear to me...

Here's my latest "mindmap" of how I imagine a site using this module class, would work:

Here's a basic representation of class set "Module":

[img src=\"http://home.wanadoo.nl/lekkage/img/modclassset.png\" border=\"0\" alt=\"IPB Image\" /]

Now, why do I bother you guys with all of this?

Basicly, I feel I've lost perspective. Or maybe the idea was flawed in the first place, I dunno.

What I would really like, is for someone with experience with big applications to give me some pointers, through out some old ideas, and help me put in the right new ideas...

I can understand if you don't quite get the picture yet, please let me know and I'll try to further explain myself.

EDIT:

To explain a little more: the module class set uses a "pagemap", a tree of possible pages within a module, wich defines their hierarchy and properties. Example Image:
[img src=\"http://home.wanadoo.nl/lekkage/img/pagemap.png\" border=\"0\" alt=\"IPB Image\" /]
This allows for standard forward and sideways navigation, and stores specific properties per class. Certian properties can be inherited from a parent, so they need not be defined necessarily for every page.

One of these properities is 'file' (not shown above), this references to a HTML file, which will be loaded into an array and manipulated by subclass "HTML" before send to the browser.

Before that, the position of this HTML is already determined by CSS in the header already sent by the configuration object.




Thank you very much for taking the time to read all this. :)



P.S. I've been away for quite some time, and what do I see? Take away my "guru" title eh? LOL! Nah, seriously, it's better this way, to many novices were getting guru titles. (inluding me! lol...)
