The following four-tier development approach was adopted to equip the site with numerous features and functionality mentioned before:
  • The Database layer containing MySQL Server Database, Tables, stored procedures and so on
  • The Data Access layer containing the Data Access DLL responsible for accessing data from database
  • The Business Layer DLL consisting of all business logic procedures for modules like Offices,Properties, Maps etc
  • The User Interface Layer which forms the Graphical User Interface of the website

Development Highlights

The design approach was built around PHP 5 and MySQL SERVER 5 due to the social networking nature of the website. Modules like Offices, Properties, Maps etc. 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 object-oriented 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. Sub-domains were used for the different areas of the website to guarantee scalability. 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 6 months.
