Planning The following four-tier development approach was adopted to equip the site with numerous features and functionality mentioned below: •

The Database layer containing MySQL Server Database, Tables, Triggers and so on.

The Data Access layer containing the Data Access DLL responsible for accessing data from the database.

The Business layer DLL consisting of all the business logic procedures for modules such as Advertisers, Publishers, Banners, Payment Reports, Earning Reports etc.

Architecture N-tier architecture was adopted to efficiently meet the needs of the enormous website. Following are the layers involved which are loosely coupled with each other: •

User Interface Layer: This will include the page level layer which will be accessing the other layers beneath to present the data.

Business Specific Layer: This acts as a bridge between the User Interface layer and the Database Layer. This will contain all the business logic for the different components involved in the project.

Database Specific Layer: This acts as a bridge between the physical database and the business logic accessing the data.

Physical Database Layer: This includes MySQL with the tables, views and stored procedures.

Development Highlights The design approach was built around PHP5 and MySQL SERVER 5 due to the nature of the website. Modules like Advertisers, Publishers, Banner Management and Payment facilities were developed in PHP such that they can be executed directly from the UI layer. In order to most effectively access the database in an object-oriented context, an interface translating the object logic to the relational logic was used to communicate with the relational databases in an objectoriented manner. An intermediary abstraction layer was created for accessing data from the database. The UI layer was kept free of any business logic with images, applications and data being called from their respective servers. Web usability guidelines were strictly followed during development and the interface was made easily navigable through judicious use of AJAX, CSS and HTML controls. The site was developed and fully functional within a span of 4 months. | © 2013 Brainvire Infotech Pvt. Ltd
